Sign up for RISE to Vote: Professional team
RISE to Vote takes less than 30 minutes to execute and can occur during the pre-season or regular season. The program can include a guest speaker, such as Martin Luther King III, who adds inspiring historical context and discusses the importance of being informed and engaged citizens. RISE will bring all necessary components to a venue selected by the team and ensure any special circumstances (i.e. an athlete residing and playing in different states) are handled in accordance with the law. RISE will partner with state and local election officials and nonpartisan organizations like the League of Women Voters and the Drum Major Institute with expertise in leading and executing effective voter registration drives to amplify the effort and ensure effectiveness.
One goal of the initial campaign is to register as many professional athletes as possible by National Voter Registration Day, Sept. 25, 2018.
