CHICAGO — The United Center is being turned into a polling place for any Chicago voters this Election Day.

It’s the first time the famed arena, which is home to the Blackhawks and Bulls, is being used as a polling place. Any Chicagoans will be able to vote there Tuesday, regardless of where their typical polling place is.

Coronavirus safety measures will be taken, like keeping voters 6 feet apart, putting up plexiglass dividers between polling stations and providing hand sanitizer and masks.

Chicagoans will be able to do same-day voter registration and vote in person or drop off a mail-in ballot there.

The arena will be open for voting 6 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday at 1901 W. Madison St. Voters should park in Lot K, which has a gate off Adams Street, and enter the stadium through the South Atrium Entrance.
