Both candidates' spots will air on CBS and NBC on Monday night.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have made their final pleas to voters in the form of two-minute ads released Monday, just one day before ballots are tallied on Election Day.

In Clinton's final ad of her 2016 campaign, titled "Tomorrow," the Democratic nominee sits before the camera and speaks to her supporters directly, listing several points she wants them to know before hitting the voting booth on Nov. 8.

"It’s not just my name and my opponent’s name on the ballot — it's the kind of country we want for our children and grandchildren. Is American dark and divisive? Or hopeful and inclusive?" she asks. "Our core values are being tested in this election."

She continues, "I will work my heart out as president to make life better for you and your family. We won't always get it right, but you can count on this — I've never quit, and I never will."

Clinton ends her ad with a hopeful message: "Tonight, I'm asking for your vote. And tomorrow, let's make history together."

Trump's video spot, titled "Donald Trump's Argument for America," takes a different approach by targeting his opponent as he lays out the consequences the country may face if Clinton is elected president. Audio of one of Trump's rally speeches can be heard over footage of media coverage of Clinton's email scandal, President Obama and Bill Clinton.

"The political establishment that is trying to stop us is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration and economic and foreign policies that have bled our country dry," Trump says in the ad. "The only thing that can stop this corrupt machine is you."

He concludes his message, "I'm doing this for the people and for the movement, and we will take back this country for you. And we will make America great again."

Both spots will air live during CBS' Kevin Can Wait and NBC's The Voice on Monday night.
