Looks like Red Sox fans might get to go back to Fenway Park after all! Election officials are expected to approve Fenway Park as an early voting venue early on Thursday, September 24. after Red Sox owner John Henry offered it as a possible polling station for those voters hesitant to cast ballots indoors.
The famous ballpark wouldn’t the first grand sports venue to become a voting station for the upcoming elections. As cities continue to combat coronavirus, other ventilated, large sports venues around the country like the Nationals Park in DC and the LA Dodgers’ Park have also been selected as voting centers.
Earlier in August, as NBA arenas were selected voting centers, Boston officials declared TD Garden wouldn’t be opening as a polling station because of conflict with a city of Boston election deadline rule.

If approved, Fenway would open its doors for Bostonians to vote on Oct. 17 and 18.
