YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The close race for electoral votes in Ohio has drawn celebrities to campaign in the Buckeye State.
Saturday afternoon, actress and Emmy winner Alfre Woodard stopped at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Youngstown. She spent more than an hour there campaigning for Hillary Clinton.
Woodard is famous for her roles in Hill Street Blues and St. Elsewhere.
She talked to folks about Clinton’s economic plans and encouraged people to make use of Ohio’s early voting.
“It is the only power you have in a democratic society — the power of your vote,” Woodard said. “You could be riding a bicycle that you made yourself from spare parts.Your vote weighs just as much as other people’s golfing buddies’ votes weigh.”
Early voting started this past Wednesday and ends Nov. 7.
