“Voting is the most sacred act of our democracy and our actions to preserve, support and protect it, especially during a pandemic, are essentially [sic] to engage in the process,” said Executive VP and General Manager Juan Rodriguez in a press release Tuesday. “By working with our local election officials in Harris County, we’re honored that we can open up BBVA Stadium to create a safe place for our neighbors, friends and family members to cast a ballot and share in the future of our community.”
