The Arizona Cardinals are opening the doors of State Farm Stadium for those looking for a location to drop off their ballots for the upcoming election.
Registered voters in Maricopa County can drop off their ballots at State Farm Stadium at designated times from this Saturday to Tuesday of next week.
Voters can use the drive-thru ballot drop-off location in the West Preferred parking lot of State Farm Stadium. The area can be accessed by entering from 95th Avenue off of Maryland Avenue on the northwest side of the stadium, the team said in a press release Tuesday.
Cardinals offensive lineman D.J. Humphries said, “Go do it,” when asked about voting on Tuesday.
Here’s a full list of the times voters can drop off their ballots:
– Saturday, Oct. 31: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
– Sunday, Nov. 1: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
– Monday, Nov. 2: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
– Tuesday, Nov. 3 (Election Day): 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
“I do think it’s important, it’s wild times right now,” Cardinals linebacker Haason Reddick said Tuesday when asked about voting. “The U.S. and the world itself is in a wild state right now. With everything going on, I do think it’s time for a change and like everyone else, it has to start with voting.
“I encourage people to get out there and vote so we can get the change for the most part that we know that we need.”
State Farm Stadium joins the Arizona Coyotes’ Gila River Arena, and the Suns and Mercury’s Madhouse on McDowell as voting centers and early voting ballot drop-off locations for the upcoming November elections.
