“One of the things that our players have been very passionate about for the past few months has been voter education. We have focused our collective efforts on making sure our players, coaches, staff and Chiefs Kingdom are informed and engaged when it comes to their right to vote,” said Chiefs President Mark Donovan. “One of the ideas that came out of our many discussions around voter education was to use Arrowhead as a polling location.”
