The outcome of Montana’s hotly contested Senate race may come down to which side did a better job of motivating their supporters to show up on Election Day.

Tuesday caps an extended 25-day voting period in Montana’s midterm elections, with the top race being the battle between Democratic Sen. Jon Tester and Republican challenger Matt Rosendale.

The candidates and political observers say there aren’t many undecided voters left in the race after a record amount topping $67 million was spent to influence their choice.

Both Tester and Rosendale have spent the last days of the campaign focused on getting their supporters to the polls.

Voters also will be deciding whether to give Republican U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte his first full term in office against Democratic challenger Kathleen Williams.
