Monday was the last day before the presidential elections and the candidates traveled around the country to make it count. NY1's Grace Rauh has the story.

Running for president is not for the faint of heart.

But even the most seasoned politicians might be wiped out by the pace of the final hours of this campaign.

President Barack Obama hopped from Wisconsin to Ohio Monday, with an evening event in Iowa on his schedule as well.

Bruce Springsteen and Jay-Z were even on hand to warm up some of Obama's crowds.

But compared to Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney, Obama's schedule was a cakewalk -- Romney had five campaign stops in four states.

Romney started the day in Florida and was then off to Virginia to stump in Lynchburg and Fairfax.

Romney was scheduled to hold an early evening event in Ohio before capping off the night with a rally in New Hampshire.

But at this point, rallies can only do so much. What really matters to both campaigns is getting supporters to the polls.

After voting in Massachusetts on Tuesday, Romney will travel to Ohio and Pennsylvania for a last minute get-out-the-vote push.

Obama has less on his Election Day to-do list. He will not be heading to the polls to cast his ballot.

He -- along with more than 30 million other Americans -- voted early in this election.
