The Detroit Pistons want Michigan residents to get out and vote. The team is working with the Michigan secretary of state’s office to drive voter participation. As a result, the team’s new performance center will be a voting site in future elections.

The Pistons made that announcement Wednesday. The team also announced that all employees will have paid off days on Aug. 4 and Nov. 3 so they can vote.

In a statement, Pistons owner Tom Gores said the team is “committed to promoting informed participation in the electoral process.” Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson called the Pistons “tremendous civil leaders.”

During a normal regular season, it is possible games could fall on Nov. 3. That won’t be the case this year, as the league is reportedly looking to start the 2020-21 season in December due to the coronavirus pandemic.
