The first presidential vote in South Carolina is just over two weeks away, but the onslaught of ads, rallies and events is just around the corner.
In York County, political party activists on both sides are enlisting volunteers and preparing to flood the area with reasons to get out and vote.
Diane Carr is with the Republican Party in York County.
"Finally, after Christmas, after New Year's, it's inescapable, it's here, so get ready," she said.
Two Democrats already have working headquarters in York County -- Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. However, other candidates, such at Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, are opening call centers and volunteers are beginning to canvass neighborhoods.
Jim Watkins heads York County's Democratic Party.
"The reason we're going to see a whole lot of information sent at us is because South Carolina has two primary dates," he said.
Republicans will vote on Jan. 19, and Democrats will hold their primary on Jan. 26.
Watkins said candidates will have time to criss-cross the state, while workers will focus on the mission of getting out the vote.
"Phone calling, identifying voters, making sure they know where and when to vote, getting them there," he said.
Carr said many voters who've had little interest in following the presidential races up until now will tune in quickly. She said Republicans are enlisting every volunteer they can to get voters to the polls.
She said no one will be able to run and hide from the coming political storm.
"They know it's coming," she said. "They try to ignore it as long as possible, but soon they'll get the TV ads, the radio spots and the phone calls."
