Forget mail-in balloting.
You may just be able to head to the Wells Fargo Center to vote on Nov. 3.
Comcast Spectacor has made its center available to the city of Philadelphia for “general election activities” in November.
The Eagles have offered Lincoln Financial Field, and last week, the NBA and its players union announced a plan to use its arenas as election polling centers in exchange for resuming playoff games after players across the league protested in the wak!e of the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, by a police officer in Kenosha, Wis.
“In the face of the unique circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic, both our organization and the 76ers are pleased to be able to support the City of Philadelphia in its efforts to ensure full, fair, safe and secure voter participation in this fall’s election,” said Valerie Camillo, President of Business Operations of the Flyers and Wells Fargo Center. “We applaud the NBA and the 76ers for their advocacy around this issue and are pleased to be able to make our facility available consistent with the City’s needs.”
