Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were on the campaign trail on the eve of Election Day, giving voters one final push.

Election judges started picking up supplies over the weekend. By now, most are in place. High voter turnout is expected across the board.

Looking back at 2012, four out of five precincts with the highest election day turnout were located at schools. This time around, many schools closed up shop, just for the election.

Meanwhile across the country, candidates were making their final runs to the finish line.

Donald Trump is reviving an insult derided as racist as he makes his final pitch to voters on the eve of Election Day.

Speaking during a rally in New Hampshire, Trump referred to Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas" - a reference to claims she made about being part Native American.

He's also calling Warren a "terrible person," "a terrible human being" and a "terrible senator" who is hated by her colleagues.

The comment came as Trump continued to air grievances about the GOP primary and early concerns about whether he would be able to win more than 50 percent of the GOP vote.

Hillary Clinton says at a large campaign rally with President Barack Obama that Tuesday's election represents "the test of our time." She asks, "What will we vote for, not just against?"

Clinton rallied thousands of supporters outside Philadelphia's Independence Hall on the eve of the election. She tells the crowd that she deeply regrets how angry the tone of the campaign became, prompting someone to yell that it wasn't her fault.

Clinton was joined on stage after the rally by her husband, former President Bill Clinton, her daughter Chelsea and the Obamas. The rally included performances by rockers Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, all aimed at winning battleground Pennsylvania.
