Charlotte’s Biggest Sports Venues Opening as Safe Polling Locations for Early Voting

478

With the COVID-19 pandemic and other factors reducing the number of in-person voting options this year, sports arenas around the country are opening their doors to voters for safe, in-person polling options.

Election Super Centers, a non-partisan group, along with legendary basketball coach Doc Rivers and organizations across the country, are working with local election authorities and more than 60 NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL and MLS arenas, leagues and teams to let communities know their local venues are participating as polling sites – for a campaign called “Make History Here.”
