Last month the NHL players went on strike for two days during the middle of the playoffs. One of the demands of the Hockey Diversity Alliance was the use of arenas as polling places for the upcoming 2020 General Election.
The Arizona Coyotes may not have been the first team to post a response, but when they did they made sure to include the use of Gila River Arena as a polling place.
