Early voting in the U.S. presidential election gets underway this weekend in Massachusetts. Registered voters in Boston will cast ballots at Fenway Park from Saturday to Sunday, with other locations being open through October 30. (Oct. 16)
ZINEB CURRAN: We are here at Fenway Park, the oldest operating Major League Baseball park in the country, and we are really excited to be opening up our doors to early voters this weekend October 17 and October 18.
So this is the first time we've ever done early voting or opened up Fenway Park for any kind of voting in the city of Boston. So we're really excited to be partners with the city on this. We are one of 10 locations this weekend throughout the city of Boston that will be available to residents of Boston to cast their early ballots. And we're really excited to be able to do our part and our civic duty to make sure there's more access and a really interesting venue this year for early voters.
Fenway Park's really ideal because we have a lot of open air spaces that are also covered. Our concourse area is covered, but there's lots of air circulation. There's lots of space. So this is really a great location. And when we started working with the city a few weeks ago to see if Fenway Park would be a good location, they did their walkthrough and determined it really would.
Well, our season is over, so our players for the most part have all gone back to their hometowns. But really, we've wanted to use our brand to encourage people to vote, and the power of Fenway Park, the power of the Red Sox, to just encourage people to vote, whichever way they decide to vote.
We are encouraging people to vote. We are not coming out on one side or another. We just want people to exercise their right to cast their ballot.
