Party candidates, leaders make final push for Avalon votes
Sunday marks the last day before the provincial election in Newfoundland and Labrador and, as such, party leaders and candidates made a final push to get voters to the polls.
Liberal Leader Dwight Ball was spotted at the Farmer's Market Saturday in St. John's.

NDP Leader Earle McCurdy and PC Leader Paul Davis told CBC News they would both spend their last campaign days in their home districts of St. John's West and Topsail-Paradise respectively.
If social media is any indication, candidates were out in full force over the weekend.
NDP candidate for Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi Lorraine Michael said she was looking forward to an afternoon of door-knocking Sunday.
