Matches played the day before the election will be used “to amplify each team’s work to promote civic engagement in their respective markets and share important voting resources from our partners,” the organization said.
“It’s unusual,” James Cadogan, executive director of the NBA’s Social Justice Coalition, told MSNBC in an interview Tuesday. “But voting and election day is obviously unique and incredibly important to our democracy.”
In 2020, the organization turned most of its arenas into polling places, early voting sites, and Election Day voting centers.
The entire 2022-2023 program will be unveiled on Wednesday at 3 p.m.
