As part of their continued efforts to support progress and social justice in the United States and around the world, the Toronto Raptors released a public service announcement detailing how Americans living abroad can register to vote in the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

The video directs prospective voters to FVAP.gov, which describes itself as offering voting assistance for service members, their families and overseas citizens, ensuring they “are aware of their right to vote and have the tools and resources to successfully do so – from anywhere in the world.”

Through the site, Americans living abroad can access information both on how to register, and how to cast votes with absentee ballots.

“Let’s all vote and make change together,” Terence Davis says at the video’s conclusion.

Matt Thomas, Malcolm Miller, Patrick McCaw, Fred VanVleet, Norman Powell and head coach Nick Nurse also appear in the video.

Nurse, who has said he’s had conversations with his fellow NBA head coaches about how to get people out to vote in the upcoming presidential election, previously announced the video would be releasing either Friday or Saturday.

“Our buses and our messaging and the coaches wearing pins and the floor and the backs of jerseys it’s awesome,” Nurse said on Friday. “But we’ve got to remember that when we started all this we were looking for some concrete, long-lasting change and really impactful things.”

The U.S. election is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020.
