Unfortunately, there are many forces at hand that want to ensure as few Black people vote in this election as possible. But with what we know is at stake in this election, Black individuals have been chomping at the bit to vote since that fateful November night in 2016 when … we know what happened.
Black Lives Matter … and so does Black votes. That is what a number of noteworthy ballers from the WNBA and NBA community are hoping to let the Black community know.
LeBron James – along with Skylar Diggins-Smith, Trae Young, Draymond Green and Jalen Rose were announced as the new leadership of the “More than a Vote” organization. It aims to register Black voters for November’s election and inform those on how to combat efforts to suppress the vote.
Also joining the effort is Kevin Hart and a number of Black musicians will likely also engage in the efforts as well.

With what is on the line in this election, record voter turnout is more than likely needed. November 3rd will be here before we know it.
VOTE. Whether it is by mail, in-person, or early.
