Chuck D & Eminem Promote “Make History Here” Easy-Access Voting Campaign

#Election2020 is coming down to the wire. Nationwide stadiums and arenas are opening their doors for safe, in-person voting.

There are less than six days until voting for the 2020 general election comes to an end. With the COVID-19 pandemic still raging across the United States as well as some elected officials’ plots to close polling locations and remove ballot drop-off boxes, voting could be more difficult for some citizens this year than in the past.

In response, the nonpartisan Election Super Centers Project launched the “Make History Here” initiative to help ensure access to socially-distanced, in-person voting at the nation’s arenas and stadiums. Local election authorities, prominent athletes, and numerous NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL, and MLS teams are working to make the right to vote safer and easier.

“You’re used to going to these arenas to cheer on your favorite team. Now you can use these spaces to really make your voice heard in an even more profound way – by exercising your right to vote,” states Doc Rivers, head coach of the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers.

Two Hip Hop legends have also joined the “Make History Here” campaign. Chuck D and Eminem side with other celebrities such as LeBron James, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Orlando Bloom, Jeffrey Wright, Mariska Hargitay, D.L. Hughley, T.I., Sarah Silverman, DeAndre Jordan, and Maddie Ziegler in assisting to promote Election Super Centers.

“With less than a week to go before election day, we’re seeing record-breaking early voting numbers across the country, and this effort is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to encourage voters to make their voices heard at their favorite sporting venues,” says Public Enemy’s Chuck D. “Every American deserves access to a ballot, and every vote counts.”

Eminem adds, “Being able to head to a stadium or arena to vote makes it easier and safer than ever to use your voice. With six days left these are places you can go to and safely do it in-person. You only get one shot… sorry I couldn’t resist!”
