MEDFORD, OR -- Deschutes County Clerk Nancy Blankenship is teaming up with a pair of professional basketball players to encourage young voters to participate in upcoming elections.
Kyle and E.J. Singler are originally from the Medford area. Kyle is a small forward for the Oklahoma City Thunder; E.J. plays for the NBA’s development league.
In the videos, the brothers focus on the importance of voting. "This election season, we want you to know how much your vote matters. Our elected officials could change your life for good or bad; that’s huge. Go to OregonVotes.gov
to get registered." In a second video, they acknowledge this year's contentious battles. "This next election cycle could be one of the craziest. And so, voting matters, big time."
