Marking Women’s Suffrage By Encouraging Voting Through Esports

WVXU |

YWCA Greater Cincinnati and Game Day PR are partnering to reach “a new generation” of voters by live streaming video games played by local female gamers.

“They will play for over six hours on Tuesday and their whole mission will be to encourage people to register to vote that day,” says Jackie Reau, Game Day CEO and YWCA Greater Cincinnati board member.

Viewers will be able to watch on the streaming platform Twitch. The gamers will talk about the importance of voting and registering to vote. Viewers will be able to ask questions and get information like a link to their local board of election in a special chat room.
