With the voter registration deadline looming on Monday, area groups conducted voter registration drives on Saturday throughout the area.

"We have been doing them all over northeastern Ohio," said HOLA Executive Director and Founder Veronica Dahlberg.

The organization is an advocacy group for the Latino community and hoped to be at 500 people registered by the end of the day, Dahlberg said while set up on Main Avenue in Ashtabula on Saturday afternoon.

"We are strictly non-partisan," Dahlberg said. She said the organization tries to provide an easy way for people to register to vote.

The League of Women Voters of Ashtabula County had a table set up Saturday in the Rock Creek Library for voter registration. Cynthia Nagy, who coordinates the voter registration efforts for the organization, said there have also been registration drives in Orwell, Jefferson, Ashtabula and Geneva.

The League of Women Voters is also a non-partisan group seeking to help people register to vote. Nagy said registration numbers at the libraries have been low this year.

"The people we have helped have been great," Nagy said.

She said the LWV has been delivering ballots to the board of elections.

"I have been a member for more than 30 years," Nagy said.

She said she enjoys studying the issues with others and preparing people for the elections.

Nagy said the recent candidates nights were successful.
