(NECN) - As you head out to work and school Tuesday morning, many will be stopping at the polls for the special primary election in the race to fill John Kerry's senate seat.

Here with a quick update is Meredith Warren, a republican strategist, and Mara Dolan, co-chair of policy for the state democratic committee.

“Your vote counts, more bang for the buck,” Dolan says about what today means. “There are fewer than one in five registered voters in Massachusetts who are going to make it to the poll today, so your vote will count more than ever.”

“I completely agree, it’s going to be whoever has the best get out the vote operation who wins the day today,” says Warren.

What does Markey need to do?

“Markey needs to get out the vote,” says Dolan.

What about Lynch pulling out a surprising victory?

“He needs to go into the areas like Lowell, Lawrence, south Boston,” she says.

What about the Republican candidates?

“It’s going to come down to Sullivan and Gomez. Sullivan appears to have the best grassroots operation,” Warren says. “Gomez is the money guy. He’s outspent Sullivan something like nine to one.”
