This Election Season, We Want to Help You Get Prepared and Race to the Polls

At Under Armour, we make a simple promise: to make you better. This commitment isn’t just to our athletes but also extends to our community. We know democracy is the ultimate team sport, but too many are blocked from playing. Our Run to Vote initiative will ensure we can work with our partners to educate, mobilize, and empower Americans so we can all make an impact on our democracy. We are working to increase voter turnout by putting as many voters on the playing field as we can. Check out the resources below, then get registered and go vote. Let’s all make an impact this election season.

“We are here to empower those who strive for more. I want to make sure people are provided every opportunity to have their opinion heard and exercise it in an informed way. It’s as simple as that.”
- Patrik Frisk, President & CEO
