WINCHESTER (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Marco Rubio and former Rep. Ron Paul are lending their voices to the final day of the acrimonious race for Virginia governor.  

Biden is set to campaign Monday with Democratic nominee Terry McAuliffe near Washington. Rubio and Paul are slated to appear at rallies throughout the state with Republican hopeful Ken Cuccinelli. The Hampton Roads rally is at the GOP candidate's Va. Beach Victory Office, located at 505 S. Independence Blvd. in Va. Beach, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

There are several campaign events in Hampton Roads for Libertarian Robert Sarvis.  He was with students at Old Domimion University and Hampton University.  He'll attend a private event at a home in Norfolk beginning at 7:00 p.m.

The last-minute campaigning comes ahead of Tuesday's election that's going to be decided by the few Virginians who choose to vote. The state Board of Elections chief says turnout could be as low as 30 percent of registered voters.

Polls show McAuliffe ahead and campaign finance reports show a dramatically lopsided dynamic, with television airtime tilted in McAuliffe's favor by a 10-to-1 margin. In the Quinnipiac University poll released Monday,McAuliffe has a 46 - 40 percent likely voter lead over Republican State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, with 8 percent for Libertarian Party candidate Robert Sarvis. The poll was completed Sunday night.

Polls in Virginia open at 6:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m.
