The YMCA of the USA is trying to make sure you can get to the polls.
On Friday, the Y announced they’d be offering child care so parents can vote on Nov. 8.
“Election Day is arguably one of the most important days in the U.S. this year — the ultimate opportunity for Americans to make their voices heard through the democratic process,” YMCA of the USA President and CEO Kevin Washington said in a statement. “Unfortunately, many people who want to vote find it challenging because they have to take children with them. The Y’s hope is that Zoe’s Kids Day Out initiative enables those parents and caregivers to exercise their right to vote, and ensures children can spend their time in a safe, nurturing environment.”
But make sure you check with your local Y before dropping off the kids — not every location is offering it.
