Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote and the Milwaukee Bucks are teaming up to host Fuel the Vote, a drive-up food distribution and voter registration drive, on Saturday, Oct. 3, to support those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure they are registered to vote ahead of the general election on Nov. 3.
Fuel the Vote will be held on the former Bradley Center lot, directly south of Fiserv Forum, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Participants will drive up to the site and remain in their cars while they register to vote and receive food. Participants are encouraged to pre-register for the event here.
Fuel the Vote will help meet a critical need while providing important voting information. Only 48 percent of 18-to-24-year olds reported turning out to vote in Wisconsin in 2018. During this unprecedented time, voter registration rates, especially among young people and people of color, have declined during the pandemic compared to previous years.
All volunteers and attendees will be required to wear masks and remain in their cars. Volunteers will also wear gloves while assisting participants. If attendees do not have a mask, When We All Vote will provide one.
