Fenway Park will serve as an early voting site where registered voters from throughout the city can cast their ballots for the general election in person on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 17 and 18.
“Voting is one of the best ways to support and champion the issues and policies we value and what better way for the Red Sox to help with that effort than to open up our ballpark for Boston residents to cast their early ballots,” Sam Kennedy, president and CEO of the Boston Red Sox, said in a statement.
The city’s Election Commission approved the plan last week to use the ballpark as one of the city’s early voting sites for the general election, and any registered voters in Boston only will be able to cast their ballots at Fenway Park during on the two aforementioned days between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
During those times, voters can enter the ballpark via the Gate A entrance on Jersey Street, according to published reports, and voting will take place in the concourse area.
Voters who come to the ballpark on those days will also be required to wear face coverings and adhere to social distancing.
