The announcements were made Tuesday morning.
The Cavaliers and arena worked with the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections and city of Cleveland to add the Fieldhouse to the county’s list of polling stations.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic when wearing masks and social distancing is a necessary precaution, the space available at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse makes it a desirable site to ensure that safety protocols can be addressed so that the public does not have to make a choice between their health, the health of their neighbors and election workers, and exercising their right to vote.”
The FieldHouse will serve precincts I, L and Q in Cleveland’s Ward 3 in accordance with local voting location rules for the November 3 election.
On September 22, any voters who reside in Cuyahoga County can register to vote for the election at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse regardless of their actual polling location within the county.
