Beginning today, October 13, 2020, the San Antonio Spurs are opening up the AT&T Center to ensure San Antonians get a chance to cast their votes.

This is where the San Antonio Spurs’ front office puts its money where its mouth is. The team and organization have been fantastic about using their platform to speak out against the racial inequality of Black and Brown people in the United States over recent months, let alone years. This is supposed to be one of the most forward-thinking organizations in sports and quite frankly, they’re proving it once again with today’s event.

If you’re registered to vote in San Antonio, TX, you can vote early at the San Antonio Spurs’ home, the AT&T Center, today. In an attempt to adhere to the social distancing guidelines in place throughout the country and world, there are a variety of dates available to cast your ballot for the 2020 election early in San Antonio.

The San Antonio Spurs are opening the AT&T Center between October 13-17 from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. to enable those in the community to make their voices heard in the 2020 Presidential Election. They’ll open their doors once more on select dates through the end of October.

It’s officially Day 1 of EARLY VOTING!

In many regards, this is a celebration of democracy on the part of the San Antonio Spurs organization. They’re making this process more fun and inviting for the people who didn’t want to bother exercising their civil liberties in a standard voting process. Instead, they can do it at the Spurs’ home stadium while getting a chance to meet-and-greet with the Spurs Coyote. Additionally, the Spurs will make their new food truck available during the event on certain days.

Beyond that, this is the organization doing its part to make an impact on the community it serves. Those in lower-income areas generally have more roadblocks in their voting process — Especially amid a pandemic. Having this safe, reliable and engaging voting event is a great way for the San Antonio Spurs to align with the statements made by their players and coaches throughout the NBA season.

So long as you’re registered to vote in Bexar County, head on down to the AT&T Center during the announced dates and cast your ballot in a truly pivotal election!
