LeBron James and The L.A Dodgers to Turn Dodger Stadium a General Election Polling Place

by | Aug 14, 2020 | Sports

The L.A Dodgers are making baseball and political history. 

For the first time ever, a Major League Baseball team has made its home stadium a general election polling site. 

Lebron James’ voting-rights group of Los Angeles–More Than A Vote has partnered with Dodger Stadium to create a polling destination for the November general election. 

“Voting is all of our civic duty, and we’re excited to work with More Than A Vote to do anything we can to help out the vote by making this process as easy, accessible and safe for all Angelenos,” said Stan Kaseten, Dodgers president & CEO.  

James announced his More Than A Vote non profit organization in June. More Than A Vote was created specifically to support Black people and to call out voter suppression. Dodgers pitcher David Price is also involved with the organization as well. Price opted out of the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

On Wednesday, Banc of California Stadium announced it too would follow in Dodger Stadium’s footsteps and become an official L.A County voting center. Banc of California is home to Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles FC.  

Across the U.S, three NBA arenas will serve as polling sites including Atlanta Hawks’ State Farm Arena, Detroit Pistons’ Little Caesars Arena and Milwaukee Bucks’ Fiserv Forum.
