The Arizona Coyotes and the city of Glendale are teaming to ensure voting access during the pandemic.”
With the approval of the Maricopa County Elections Department, Gila River Arena will be a voting location from Oct. 28 until Election Day, Nov. 3.
“The Coyotes are proud to partner with the city of Glendale and the Maricopa County Elections Department to make Gila River Arena available as a voting center for the presidential election,” said Coyotes President & CEO Xavier Gutierrez.
“Voting is our civic duty, and with the ongoing pandemic, we want to do everything we can to create a safe and secure environment for Valley residents to exercise their right to vote. We encourage all voters to visit Gila River Arena this fall to make their voices heard.”
Parking at the site will be free.
The venue will serve as both a voting center and early ballot drop-off site.
Staff will promote physical distancing and safety protocols in alignment with CDC guidelines in collaboration with the Maricopa County Department of Public Health.
“Opening Gila River Arena as a voting location for the upcoming general election just makes sense,” said Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers.
“It’s easy to access since it’s just off the Loop 101, has plenty of free parking and affords voters a location that is safe and can ensure physical distancing guidelines are followed.”
