With the country seemingly on the verge of social change, the Kansas City Chiefs are doing what they can to aid in that. According to NFL Network reporter James Palmer, several Chiefs players including 2018 NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes and All-Pro safety Tyrann Mathieu will meet with higher-ups in the Chiefs' organization in order to increase voter registration on a local level.
Per Palmer, those involved include team CEO Clark Hunt and team president Mark Donovan.
Statewide elections are being held this month across the country, and voter turnout is always something that could be improved upon. With the recent killing of George Floyd leading to protests across the globe, many people, including NFL stars, have been motivated to inspire change.
Not only are Chiefs players involved in the initiative, but head coach Andy Reid is also promoting the new voter registration program per The Athletic's Nate Taylor.
“This is about progress, man,” Reid said in a brief quote.
