The playoffs will continue on Saturday, three days after the players leave. As part of the agreement, the League embarked on a new round of efforts for social justice. While not all arenas may be able to offer their place for elections, here is a list to use as pre-early polling stations, polling stations and polling stations. The deal comes three days after Milwaukee Bucks` Milwaukee Bucks protest a police shooting shut down the league and other sports were suspended in U.S. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and NBPA Executive Director Michele Roberts said in a joint statement that he would also create television spots to promote civic engagement and form a coalition of players , coaches and team owners who advocate for police reform, among other measures to combat social justice and racial inequality. As part of an agreement with the National Basketball Players Association Association, the NBA will transform its own franchise arenas and operate into voting facilities for communities particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic, the league and the union said in a joint statement. Once the deadline for setting up a polling station in a given state has expired, the League will use its local arena for other citizen purposes. For the first time in its history, the Spectrum Center, home of the Charlotte Hornets, will serve as an early voting post in the upcoming 2020 elections, team president Fred Whitfield announced in late July. The league will transform franchised and operated arenas into polling stations under an agreement with the National Basketball Players Association.
Using large arenas as polling stations seems like a good idea in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. These arenas leave more room for social insecurity and it is important to protect secure votes. This was already underway in many cities. Some teams already have their own projects underway. In June, the Hawks announced an initiative in partnership with Fulton County to transform Atlanta`s State Farm Arena into an early voting venue for a primary starting July 20, after the June primaries were marred by problems such as unusually long lines. Last month, the Spectrum Center, home of the Charlotte Hornets, said it would welcome early voters from October 15-31. The Detroit Pistons said in early July that their training system – the Henry Ford Detroit Pistons performance center – would be used as a voting venue. Efforts to strengthen voting have been an important gathering point in the run-up to election day, as the coronavirus pandemic disrupts methods normally considered safe choices. An unprecedented number of voters are expected to cast their ballots, but the U.S. Postal Service sounded the alarm earlier this month that election mail may not be able to reach the right authorities based on the state`s current deadlines.
