GARFIELD HEIGHTS, OH - Cast members of a famed White House television series were in northeast Ohio Saturday to campaign for this year's real-life presidential election.

Joshua Malina, Mary McCormack, Richard Schiff, and Bradley Whitford, who played Will, Kate, Toby and Josh on the "The West Wing," were at the Ohio Together offices in Garfield Heights on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

The group is touring Ohio over the weekend encouraging Ohioans to register to vote (the deadline to register in Ohio is October 11th) and to urge everyone to get involved in the political process.
