SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – It’s Election Day. It’s an emotional day for many Americans, but local athletes and sports teams took the time to remind Utahns how important it is to vote and make your voice heard.
Some notable sports figures even took the time to provide information on how, where and when to vote. Like Utah Athletic Director who informed Utahns that the Huntsman Center, on the University of Utah’s campus, is a polling location.
Utah is one of 21 states and Washington D.C. that allows same-day voter registration, so even if you aren’t registered you can still make your way to a polling location and vote.
