Every year, millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, do not update their registration or are not sure how to register. On September 28, the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County will join communities across America to celebrate National Voter Registration Day to increase voter participation. Founded in 2012, National Voter Registration Day is designed to create an annual moment when the entire nation focuses on registering Americans to exercise their most basic right – the right to vote. Nearly three million Americans have registered to vote on the holiday since the inaugural National Voter Registration Day in 2012. Cleveland VOTES has been convening and organizing partners to mobilize for National Voter Registration Day in Cleveland since 2014.
Encouraging nonpartisan voting activities is one of the missions of the 3-Team Alliance between the Cavs, Browns and Indians, which was created to develop a sustainable and direct strategy to address social injustice facing the City of Cleveland and all Northeast Ohio communities. The alliance also focuses on improving the relationship between law enforcement and its citizens and increasing the opportunities for quality education for everyone.
National Voter Registration Day at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse will be a celebration of the right for all Americans to have a voice. Team mascots will be on hand to greet the public, and everyone will receive a special giveaway courtesy of the Cavs, Browns and Indians.
Cleveland sports fans can text CAVALIERS, BROWNS OR TRIBE to 26797 to check their registration status, learn more about vote-by-mail and get timely reminders about all elections relevant to them.
Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse will also serve as a polling location for the 2021 General Election on Tuesday, November 2. Per the local designated voting location rules, only registered voters residing in precincts I, L and Q in Cleveland’s Ward 3 will be able to cast their in-person ballot at the FieldHouse.
