In partnership with the video news platform NowThis, the NBA legend released a public service announcement Tuesday giving residents of the Copper State details on how to vote in the upcoming presidential election.
The informational video, which runs for just over three minutes, features guidance about deadlines, early registration, voting by mail, and what not to do when voting.
“Hey Arizona, voting is easy,” he explained. “But, you’ve got to make sure you’re registered first.”
The deadline for registration in Arizona is Oct. 5.
While Kerr is very invested in politics and social justice initiatives and makes his support regularly and publicly known, the video remains fact-based.
Kerr also directs those in line at polling places before 7 p.m. to “stay there.”
In the primary elections, voters in Georgia gave up and left before casting a ballot following a full-scale meltdown of voting systems at polling places across the state.
Arizona is expected to be a highly contentious battleground come November, with polls showing 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leading President Trump by a little less than three percentage points.
A FiveThirtyEight forecast gives Biden a 65% chance of winning the state.
