For the first time in the arena's history, the United Center will serve as a voting super site on Election Day, Nov. 3.
Come Election Day, voters will be able to officially make their voice heard in the home of the Blackhawks and Bulls.
In conjunction with the United Center, the Chicago Board of Elections is providing safe and accessible voting options and designating the arena as an additional option for Chicago voters.
“We are proud to partner with the United Center to make voting even easier for Chicagoans on Election Day,” said Chicago Board of Election Chairwoman Marisel Hernandez. “We’re encouraging everyone to plan their vote – whether that’s by mail, early in person, or in person on Election Day – there are multiple options and we hope Chicagoans will choose the option most convenient for them to vote.”
On Election Day, the UC will be open to all Chicago voters from 6:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. CT and will provide same-day voter registration, Vote by Mail ballot return, and in-person voting.
“The United Center has long served as a gathering place for our city, and we are proud that it will be used this year as a voting location for the first time in its history. Together, the Blackhawks, Bulls, and United Center are happy to play our part and offer our arena to further civic engagement in our communities and expand voting opportunities for Chicago residents,” Co-Chairmen of the United Center Joint Venture Jerry Reinsdorf, Chicago Bulls Chairman, and Rocky Wirtz, Chicago Blackhawks Chairman said. "The partnership from the City of Chicago and the Chicago Board of Elections was instrumental in bringing this Super Site to life, and we also want to thank the arena staff working tirelessly to provide Chicagoans another convenient and socially-distanced option to vote."
