(NECN) - The polls are open for Election Day, and Boston mayoral candidates Marty Walsh and John Connolly have been making their final push to reach out to voters.

Walsh joined Justin Michaels to talk about the morning and preparing for the day.

He said he will be hitting business districts to talk to voters.

Walsh said it was strange to not see Tom Menino’s name on the ballot and that he did a double-check when he voted.

“It’s different, but it’s exciting,” he said.

How does he talk to people about claims that his machine based on union advantage?

He said, “That’s just not true. My machine is made up of moms and Boston Public Schools kids. My machine is made up of senior citizens.”

He added that if people attended his rally, they would see that he has the support of a wide variety of persons.
