The Denver Nuggets Paul Millsap, who is currently playing in the NBA Western Conference Finals, has announced a partnership with Georgia’s DeKalb County to provide his personal training facility, CORE4, as an election vote center from Oct. 12 through Oct. 30.
“I chose to wear ‘Vote' on my Denver Nuggets jersey during the 2020 NBA Playoffs to demonstrate my personal passion for the cause,” Millsap said in a news release. “However, I was compelled to do more. So, I’m proud to provide access to the CORE4 facility as an early voting polling location in the DeKalb community.”
Millsap is also part of the “I am a Voter” campaign, with the hopes to create a cultural shift around voting and civic engagement.
He said he plans to honor the life of Congressman John Lewis by encouraging students to be part of the “Good Trouble” mantra that Lewis famously coined.
