NWHL and NWHL Players' Association unite with Power the Polls

NWHL

BROOKLYN – On National Voter Registration Day, the National Women’s Hockey League and the NWHL Players’ Association have unveiled “NWHL Votes” – a league-wide, non-partisan initiative to inspire fans, staff, players, and everyone in the close-knit hockey community to register to vote and to participate in the upcoming elections on November 3.

In addition to driving registration and encouraging everyone to check their voting status with our friends at Headcount, the NWHL has partnered with Power the Polls and become a member of the Civic Alliance. Power the Polls is recruiting poll workers to help ensure a safe and secure election. As a member of the Civic Alliance, the NWHL proudly stands with more than 200 major companies – including other sports leagues and teams – collaborating to encourage participation in the 2020 elections.

“We’re proud to partner with the National Women's Hockey League and so grateful to these women who are using their voices to help ensure the upcoming election is safe, fair, and accessible for all,” said Erika Soto Lamb, a founder of Power the Polls and Vice President of Social Impact Strategy at Comedy Central and MTV. “Not enough poll workers means not enough polling locations means long lines that disenfranchise people who can’t afford to wait to vote. Power the Polls is sounding the alarm bell to recruit the next generation of poll workers who will protect our democracy and ensure access to safe, fair, and smooth elections for more American voters. Thank you to the NWHL for joining us in this effort”
