"it's not always going to be your polling place, it's not always going to be the place where you've caucused in the past, because of the crowd sizes we've had in 2008 we had to move to bigger places which may be outside the precinct just to have more room that's big enough to accommodate everybody." parties say the lack of a

clinton campaign volunteers.. 06:31:41 "the doors open at six and the cut off is at seven." work their way through long lists of names and numbers.. 06:26:02 "just wanted to remind you about caucusing monday february first." one dial at a time. "it was standing room only in the kitchen and on the sun porch and i thought my goodness, what is this?" this is an army aimed at getting you, your friends, your family - anyone and everyone - out on caucus night. marilyn rambo opened up her home to dozens of volunteers. her sun porch is canvassing central - her kitchen table now a phone bank. 06:37:14 "there's a homey feel, just like the caucus homey feel. and there's a large enough space and places for people to go, yet there are a lot of them who just like to be around the table together, making the calls. it's very very busy." but this all extends beyond marilyn's front door. feet walking these volunteers have knocked on thousands of doors. knocking now, they're revisiting anyone they may have missed the first time around. it's an effort deb burns says isn't glamorous. but as a first time caucus- goer herself, she hopes this work will convince others to get out monday night. 06:57:42 "they just have to be there. they don't have to give a speech, they don't have to do anything, just be there. we need their support." support that could make all the difference for any campaign. in marion,

mccarthy, kcrg-tv9 news. clinton spent the day campaigning in western and central iowa. she told supporters in council bluffs that she wants to bring an end to tax evasion. clinton called the crime "corrosive to democracy." "people need to feel the game is not rigged against them, the deck is not stacked against them, they have the same right and opportunity to go as far as their hard work will take them." mrs. clinton's opponent who has gained a lot of ground recently will spend his caucus night in des moines as well. vermont senator bernie sanders thanked voters and volunteers in his marshalltown field office
6:06 am
to become more involved in the political process. sanders also said iowans have a unique responsibility when it comes to presidential elections. "what they are going to have to say very loudly and clearly to washington, is that we demand a government that represents all of us and not a handful of wealthy campaign contributors." and we encourage you to stay with us tonight for complete caucus coverage. we'll have reporters live in des moines and across eastern iowa, along with expert analysis. we'll broadcast live from 8 to 9 p-m on kcrg 9.2. then from 9 all the way through our 10 p-m news, we'll be live right here on our main channel, t-v9. while the caucuses have the most attention, several eastern iowa school districts hope voters turn out for a series of bond votes tomorrow. the college community district will ask voters - once again - to approve a 49 point 5-million dollar bond issue. if approved, the district would add classrooms to the high school and update heating, cooling, and
6:07 am
systems. last year, a similar bond issue failed by only 58 votes. the waterloo school district is hoping voters approve a 47-million dollar bond issue. the district would use that money for career and technical education programs in a new 35-million dollar career center, near central middle school. waterloo east and west high schools would also receive 6 million dollars each for renovations. people in denver will once again decide whether to give the o-k to a high school expansion. the district is asking voters to approve a $7.3-million dollar bond issue, which would help pay for a new gym, auditorium, and indoor track. the bond issue narrowly failed in a vote last june. and the springville school district is asking people to approve $4.7-million dollars for 9 elementary school classrooms... administrative office space... a multi-purpose room... and an exploratory technology room. again, voters will go to the polls on these bond issues on tuesday. so stay tuned to kcrg's first alert weather team to stay
