Dolphins team up with Martin Luther King III to have entire roster registered to vote – Sporting News

The Dolphins are trying to do something no NFL team has ever before done. Miami is teaming up with Martin Luther King III in an attempt to register their entire team to vote by September.

Kingand Bill Wachtel of the Drum Major Institute have teamed up with the RISE Organization to register the entire Dolphins’ roster to vote by September 27 which is National Voter Registration day.

“The Dolphins are well on their way to being the first professional ball team in American history to have a roster of fully registered voters, and this is just the beginning,” Wachtel said Thursday in an interview with ESPN.

As of Friday afternoon about 90 percent of the team had registered to vote.

“The hope is that translates to encouraging more people across our nation to get engaged and to vote because a vote-less people, as dad said, is a powerless people, King told the Miami Herald. One of the most important steps that we can take is that short step to the ballot box.
