Vice President Mike Pence has made his second stop in West Virginia in the past three months to campaign for Republican U.S. Senate nominee Patrick Morrisey. This time, he also urged residents to vote in the upcoming election.

Pence and Morrisey attended Saturday night’s rally in Bridgeport. Morrisey, who is West Virginia’s attorney general, faces Democratic incumbent Sen. Joe Manchin on Nov. 6.

Pence and Morrisey reminded the audience that the state’s early voting period starts Oct. 24. Morrisey says “this is going to be a close election. I need your help to get over the edge.”

In the 2014 midterm election, just 37.4 percent of registered voters cast ballots – the lowest for a regular general election since the secretary of state’s office started keeping such records in 1950.
