SCRANTON -- After months of waiting, it is now just a matter of hours before voters head to the polls to pick a new president.
The candidates are making the most of those final hours, trying to woo voters in several swing states, especially Pennsylvania.
A rally is scheduled for late Monday afternoon in Scranton.
The doors of the Lackawanna College Student Union building on Jefferson Avenue don't open until 2:30 p.m., but we found people waiting in line just before the sun came up.
The mask wasn't just a way to have fun in front of the camera; it was a way to help stay warm.
Temperatures bottomed out in the upper 20s in Scranton, but a group of people showed up early, anyway. They were different ages, from different hometowns, with one goal: see Donald Trump on the day before the election.
Jerry Setzer drove to Lackawanna College from Binghamton and was the first in line. This is his first Trump rally, but not his first political rally. He went to see Bernie Sanders before the New York primary.
"I heckled the rally and I got thrown out," said Setzer, adding he plans to behave at this rally.
Setzer says he is drawn to Donald Trump by his honesty. The same goes for Forest City High School senior Jared Paulin.
"A lot is going on with Hillary and the scandals and the lying and everything, and with Trump, some people may perceive it as a bad thing he doesn't have much of a filter. I like he's honest and to the point," Paulin said.
Paulin intends to spend the day hanging out with his friends and hopes his early arrival gives him a better chance of meeting Donald Trump.
Allison Lipko is another Forest City High School senior. She's willing to forgive Trump's comments about women because she sees a better chance of getting a job with Trump in the White House.
"It was disgusting, don't get me wrong," said Lipko. "He's not a politician. He doesn't have a squeaky clean record like politicians are supposed to have."
Lipko, who isn't old enough to vote, added that it is the jobs and economy issue, above all else, that has her supporting Donald Trump, and sitting on a cold sidewalk waiting to hear him speak.
