The sports world has collectively made it clear how important the 2020 presidential election is.
Arenas around the country are being used as polling locations, teams and players have sent out a number of PSAs on voting, and several facilities will be closed on Election Day so everyone can fulfill their civic duty.
The National Football League is taking part in that, as nearly every facility in the league will be closed on Election Day so players and staff members can have plenty of time to vote. In fact, only two league facilities are likely to be open this Tuesday, according to the latest reports.
The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers are scheduled to play this Thursday night, so both teams will likely keep their facilities open on Tuesday.
49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan addressed this earlier in the week.
“I hope it’s not closed on Tuesday, just because we have a Thursday night game and that would make it very tough,” the San Francisco 49ers head coach said.
Kyle Shanahan anticipates that the 49ers facility will remain open on Election Day, along with Green Bay’s, unlike the 30 other NFL team facilities.

That’s fair, but everyone within the 49ers and Packers organizations should still get as much time as they need to go out and vote.
San Francisco and Green Bay are scheduled to kick off at 8:20 p.m. E.T. on Thursday night.
