There were cheers for President Donald Trump and lots of honks for Democratic nominee Joe Biden on the streets of Collier County Monday on the eve of Election Day, reminding everyone to get out and vote.

“I think we are going to have a tremendous day tomorrow, cheers looking tremendous in Florida,” Trump said.

Trump held five last-minute campaign rallies in four states Monday, where he reassured everyone his polls were looking good.

“He’s not equipped mentally to be your president,” Trump said. “He really isn’t. You know it, I know it. Everybody knows it

Biden too made a last-minute push.

“Tomorrow, we can end the presidency that has divided this nation,” Biden said. “Tomorrow, we can end a presidency that has failed to protect the nation.”

Biden urges voters to vote for change.

“Tomorrow, we can end a presidency that has spread hate all over the country, pouring gasoline on every racial thing in the country,” Biden said.

Rich Kolko, WINK News Safety & Security Specialist, says you can expect election precincts in Florida to be busy and safe.

“Law enforcement throughout Southwest Florida has been collecting intelligence for months,” Kolko said. “They have been scouring social media, checking their sources, talking to the State of Florida to see if there are any threats.”

Law enforcement will have additional patrols and people on duty. If you have any concerns about voter intimidation or suppression, police and deputies ask you call them.

Kolko says law enforcement is more than prepared to handle whatever Election Day brings.

“As far as threats to violence, they didn’t seem to be too concerned, but they certainly were prepared,” Kolko said.
