In addition to being named a vote center, Jam City is also kicking off a series of get-out-to-vote initiatives beginning this month with #LevelUptheVote, where it will rally its gaming community of millions of players to drive voter registration and participation in the U.S. 2020 November elections. Further, Jam City announces a partnership with the non-profit, nonpartisan organization When We All Vote to help drive voter registration and election participation in an effort to help drive millions of people to register during National Voter Registration Week of Action September 20th-27th.
In-game activations will take place across many of Jam City’s most popular mobile gaming titles.
“Jam City is first and foremost a community of people, and we believe that civic engagement and a contribution to our democracy is our social responsibility,” said CEO Chris DeWolfe. “We encourage our millions of players to participate by registering to vote via Jam City’s award-winning mobile games, and we’re grateful to be selected by the County of Los Angeles as an official mobile polling center where we will host a COVID-safe, fun polling and election event.”
Jam City’s partnership with When We All Vote will work to raise awareness around the importance of voter turnout by encouraging the community and players to register to vote during National Voter Registration Week of Action from September 20 – 27. Jam City will drive its players to the When We All Vote registration page to encourage participation in the election process. In addition, Jam City will reach out to the many businesses, essential workers and robust tech community to participate in the election process.
Voters in Los Angeles County can vote at any official polling location, and are encouraged to vote at Jam City’s Culver City headquarters, outdoors, on November 2, 2020, from 10am to 7pm at 3562 Eastham Dr, Culver City, CA 90232. Voters can also drop off Vote by Mail ballots at this location.
