Young people are turning out to vote more than ever before. And to keep that momentum going, Foot Locker in partnership with the nonprofit Rock the Vote will turn its stores across the U.S. into temporary voter registration hubs starting September 22.
Coinciding with National Voter Registration Day, this initiative is aimed at making sure eligible youth — over 4 million of them — turn out to vote in the crucial November 3 federal elections, according to its CEO, Richard Johnson.
In a year marked with such uncertainty, amid a pandemic and social unrest, our country’s future — and our collective role in shaping it — has never been more important. At Foot Locker, our mission is to inspire and empower youth culture, so partnering with Rock The Vote was a natural fit to help educate and amplify the voices of today’s youth.
Beginning this week, visitors to any of their 2,000 U.S. retail stores will have access to a digital hub where they can check their voter registration status, register to vote, and sign-up for election reminders. Store employees will also be able to guide customers in-store through the process.
Now you can get some new kicks AND register to vote! 👟 https://t.co/mBdBBKq8Dp
