Teams of Barack Obama supporters went door to door in neighborhoods across Durham Sunday, passing out flyers trying to secure last minute votes.

Time is ticking with only two days till the North Carolina primary, but supporters say there is still time to convince those undecided.

"I don't think it will be too late until the polls close Tuesday evening," said Torrey Dixon, an Obama supporter.

Volunteers came out making sure voters have a ride to the polls, while spreading Obama's message.

"I think that between now and Tuesday evening it's very important that we reach every voter that we can reach and try to get them to come out to the polls," Dixon said.

Meanwhile back at Obama's Durham headquarters, supporters offered their time to tally polls, map-out canvassing routes, and answer questions.

Debbie Cooper came all the way to Durham from New York.

"We've been making a lot of phone calls to undecided women and Obama supporters and trying to get people to vote for Senator Obama in the primaries," Cooper said. "My friend and I decided it was really important and we wanted to come down to North Carolina and help out."
