Vukmir votes Tuesday in Brookfield, Baldwin encouraging people to get to the polls

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin is defending her seat against Republican candidate Leah Vukmir. 

The final Marquette Law School poll before the election showed Baldwin with an 11-point lead over Vukmir. 

Vukmir praised her campaign before voting Tuesday morning in Brookfield. 

"When you get to this point you have to just trust that everything you have done is going to make a difference. I'm proud of the campaign that we have run and the excitement that has been generated and clearly the momentum over the last eight weeks has been growing, in large part to some of the things happening on the national level," Leah Vukmir (R) said. 

Governor Walker, Vukmir, and Attorney General Brad Schimel all have election night events at the Ingleside Hotel in Pewaukee Tuesday night. Supporters of Walker and Vukmir will be in one room. Schimel's gathering is in another. 

Meanwhile, Senator Baldwin voted absentee but stopped at the Democratic headquarters in Madison Tuesday morning as part of a canvas kickoff for supporters. She's encouraging people to get to the polls. 

"Express yourself. It's your voice, it's your vote, it's your democracy only if you vote. So turnout is everything and I'm just excited to get around the state a bit more and try to encourage everyone to participate," said Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D). 

Baldwin's election night event is in Madison.
