Draymond Green revealed he wants to make sure he will vote in the 2020 presidential elections in November.
The star of the Golden State Warriors said he does not want to make the same mistake he made in 2016, when he failed to vote.
“I didn’t vote because I was just thinking our vote doesn’t matter. We’ve seen several people in the popular vote did not win. So, our vote doesn’t matter.
When you look at the voting numbers, a lot of young people didn’t turn out, myself being one of them and especially a lot of young African American people.
And it’s taken me to get educated to understand how important it is for us to exercise our right to vote and not listen to the garbage that’s being put out there and giving us all the false reasons that we can’t vote,” Green told William C. Rhoden of The Undefeated.
“We want to use our platforms to help spread knowledge, to help everyone in our community that looks up to us, that watches us, have a better understanding of why it’s necessary that they get out and vote.” – @Money23Greenhttps://t.co/wXMKGutzDz
