The Sacramento Kings announced a partnership with Sacramento County to turn Golden 1 Center into a voting center for the upcoming November general election. The facility will be open from October 24th through November 3rd to allow people to register to vote and cast their ballots while still practicing social distancing.
The Kings are dedicated to using our platform to encourage civic participation and engagement, said Sacramento Kings Chief Operating Officer Matina Kolokotronis. We are proud to provide a location in the heart of downtown with increased accessibility and opportunity to socially distance while promoting the importance of voting.
The Kings will provide the arena at no cost to the County, and the team is also providing the Downtown West Garage as free parking for voters.
The Atlanta Hawks announced a similar move at the end of July.
This is a great way for the Kings to use their facilities to give back to the community. There's nothing to criticize here, the Kings nailed it on this one. Bravo.
