CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Mecklenburg County Board of Elections has approved Bank of America Stadium as an early voting site this fall.
Residents will be able to early vote there from Oct. 20 through Nov. 5.
"The hosting is a continuation of the organization's efforts to increase participation in the democratic process," Carolina Panthers Director of Communications Ryan Anderson wrote in a release Monday.

Early voting hours will vary:
- Weekday voting from Oct. 20 through Nov. 5: 8 a.m. - 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday, Oct. 22: 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
- Sunday, Oct. 23: 1 - 4 p.m.
- Saturday, Oct. 29: 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
- Sunday, Oct. 30: 1 - 4 p.m.
- Saturday, Nov. 5: 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
One of the reasons for those varying hours is because of games previously scheduled at Bank of America Stadium. For instance, the Carolina Panthers' home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is on Oct. 23.
"This non-partisan effort aims to make the voting process as easy and convenient as possible for those in our community," Carolina Panthers president Kristi Coleman said.
In 2020, the Panthers said 13,000 residents voted at the stadium.
