With Fiserv Forum and Miller Park serving as early voting sites and the latter hosting a voter registration drive-thru, Milwaukee's sports teams are wearing their dedication to democracy on their sleeve this fall. And you can too – literally, with a new Bucks T-shirt.
In honor of National Voter Registration Day tomorrow, the Bucks will put a "Bucks Vote" T-shirt on sale beginning on Tuesday, with proceeds from sales going toward the ACLU of Wisconsin and the League of Women Voters of Milwaukee County. The T-shirt will go on sale at the Bucks team store website on Tuesday, before also going on sale in person at the Bucks Pro Shop at Fiserv Forum the next day.
The shirt is very cool – but the most important part, though, is the rest of the team's ongoing "Bucks Vote" campaign, working to educate and motivate people to use their voice and vote in the upcoming presidential election on Tuesday, Nov. 3. The campaign's website serves as a resource featuring information on how people can register to vote, where to vote, key voting dates, how to safely and securely vote absentee, how to sign up as a poll worker on Election Day and how to vote early in person.
And speaking of voting early in person, the Bucks' home court will open to City of Milwaukee residents for safe, social distanced in-person early voting for the presidential election starting Oct. 20 through Nov. 1 from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Mondays though Fridays as well as 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
For more information on Fiserv Forum's early voting plans, as well as additional election information, visit the Bucks Vote website. Oh, and vote!
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
