Former President Barack Obama in Atlanta campaigning for Joe Biden

Obama campaigned for Joe Biden, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock while in the Peach State.

ATLANTA — Former President Barack Obama made a stop in Atlanta Monday -- one final push for the Democratic party and his former vice president, Joe Biden.

With just one day until the polls open across the country, Obama urged people to "Get Out The Vote." Not only did he campaign on behalf of Biden, he also pushed votes for Georgia Senate candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.

The event was a drive-in rally at Georgia State University's football stadium, the old Turner Field, now known as Center Parc Credit Union Stadium, the Atlanta Police Department said. 

Much of the crowd stuck to the drive-in format of the event, waving signs, honking horns and hoping the message might get out to folks on the fence about voting Tuesday. 

Obama will also be in Miami, Fla. for an "Election Eve Close-Out" rally. 

With Georgia now officially a battleground state, the campaigns have put a lot of effort into the Peach State. Just Sunday, Democratic vice president nominee Kamala Harris was in Gwinnett County while President Donald Trump was in Rome, Georgia. 

With more record numbers of votes already cast, President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden are out of time to reshape the race. Instead, they’re focusing on their base and making sure that any potential supporters have either already voted or plan to do so in-person on Tuesday. 

11Alive streamed the event live at 11alive.com, on the 11Alive News app and on the 11Alive YouTube channel.
