Yesterday the AT&T Center was turned into a voter registration location. With the support of MOVE and their many young volunteers, hundreds turned out to get registered to vote in time for the 2020 election.
The Spurs organization followed up that success today with an announcement from Bexar County stating that the AT&T Center has been chosen to serve as a voting site during the upcoming election cycle. This will include early voting days from October 13-30 as well as Election Day on Tuesday, November 3.
“As stewards of the AT&T Center, it was important for our organization to pursue this opportunity and collaborate with the county for safe voting locations in our community,” said Spurs Sports & Entertainment CEO RC Buford. “We firmly believe that voting is one of the most important and effective steps towards achieving equity for all. We’re proud that the AT&T Center has always been a place where the community comes together and it’s now a privilege to be able to turn it into a safe space where all voices can be heard.”
This is the first time the AT&T Center will be used for an election. The enormity of the arena will allow for larger voter turnout while maintaining social distancing guidelines.
“Our goal from day one has been to expand opportunities for voters to engage in the process, particularly in larger venues where we can maximize spacing and ensure safety,” said Bexar County Commissioner Justin Rodriguez. ”This partnership with the Spurs is emblematic of what our hometown organization represents: community, civic engagement and giving back. It’s a true win-win.”
Confirm you are registered to vote here, and then plan your trip to the AT&T Center for early voting during the second half of October or on Election Day.
