(WKBN) – Congressman Tim Ryan’s re-election campaign had several stations set up across the Valley Saturday to help people get registered to vote.

Youngstown, Austintown and Niles were a couple of the locations the stations were set up at.

In total, five counties were included.

“We had a huge impact with voter registration and absentee ballots. We were registering Democrats and Republicans because to me, with everything going on, whether if you will vote for me or not, we want to make sure everyone will have access to the ballot box,” Ryan said.

He also says it was important for the congressmen to lead that charge, even offering ways for people to vote from home.

First News also reached out to a member of the Columbiana County GOP.

He says they aren’t having any voter registration day, but they are registering people through their office.
