Speaking to a rally of supporters, Ms Swinson said: “Your future hinges on what we all collectively do in the next few days.
“The election will come down to a handful of votes. I want you to know that everything you do will make that difference.
“We are better as a country than the tired old broken vision that comes from Boris Johnson or Jeremy Corbyn.
Sheffield Hallam candidate Laura Gordon was alongside Ms Swinson when the battle bus came to visit S10.

During the visit, the Liberal Democrats announced a pledge of £50 billion for infrastructure investment outside London if they are elected on December 12.
Named the ‘Regional Rebalancing Programme’ it would help tackle ingrained inequality across the UK, says Jo Swinson.
The money is to be spent on sustainable infrastructure projects; including electrifying railways, increasing the number of charging points for electric vehicles and developing broadband access.
Ms Swinson also indicated that the Liberal Democrats were more likely to work with Labour in a hung parliament if Jeremy Corbyn quit.
The visit concluded with Jo Swinson joining Laura Gordon on a leafleting and door-knocking tour of the region.
