Foot Locker to turn its stores into voter registration hubs

In an effort to increase youth voter turnout this November, all Foot Locker-owned stores in the U.S will become temporary voter registration sites starting September 22, the company said Friday. The registration sites include Kids Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker, Champs Sports and Footaction locations.

Each of the company's more than 2,000 stores will house a kiosk with a special website where visitors will can check their voter status, register to vote or sign up for election reminders. Foot Locker said the initiative is geared to the more than 4 million young Americans who become eligible to cast ballots this year.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced civic groups to come up with new ways to reach young voters, leaders told CBS News. Volunteers would typically flock to college campuses, concerts and festivals, but those activities have been suspended, and groups now have to use digital platforms.
