NRG Arena has been designated as the election headquarters for the Harris County Clerk’s Office for the upcoming presidential election. The arena also will be used as a voting location for all Harris County registered voters during early voting and on election day.
Early voting, which runs Oct. 13-30, will be in Hall D at NRG Arena. The facility also will have drive-thru early voting in NRG Park’s Blue Lot 16.
“We are proud to provide this facility for Harris County voters to participate in one of the most important rights and responsibilities that we as citizens have,” executive director of the Harris County Sports and Convention Corporation Ryan Walsh said. “We’re honored to do our part in giving our community every opportunity to vote during this unprecedented election year.”
Last week, the Houston Rockets announced Toyota Center also will be used as a voting location.
The Houston Texans are partnering with NRG Park and the Harris County Clerk’s Office with the launch of their We Are Texans, We are Voters initiative, which encourages fans to vote.
“Our constitutional right to vote provides all of us with a voice in our government and we encourage all Texans to be heard by participating in elections,” Houston Texans president Jamey Rootes said. “We are proud to be working with Harris County to help make voting accessible to all in our region by opening NRG Arena as a polling location. This is one part of our multifaceted voting initiative that we know will make a positive impact within our community.”
NRG Park will adhere to all CDC and Public Health guidelines regarding social distancing and face coverings.
