Batista, Candice Michelle to register at Rock the Vote bus Tuesday
WWE Superstar Batista and Diva Candice Michelle will register to vote this Tuesday, Aug. 26, in Denver, at the Rock the Vote Mobile Bus powered by AT&T. Expected to arrive around 2 p.m. (Mountain time) at the bus -- which will be located across the street from the Pepsi Center, between 14th and Stout Street -- their appearance is intended to demonstrate to younger voters throughout the country how important it is to participate in the electoral process.
Joined at the Rock the Vote bus by United States Representative Robert Wexler of Florida, WWE's patriotic Superstars will register while attending the Democratic National Convention -- along with United States Champion Shelton Benjamin -- as part of WWE's ongoing Smackdown Your Vote! initiative. Smackdown Your Vote!, tag-teaming with Rock the Vote, is working to encourage 18- to 30-year-old voters to become more active in the political system, a demographic that has turned out in significant numbers for the primaries this year.
Next week, WWE will check in on Superstars Shawn Michaels, Mr. Kennedy and Diva Mickie James as they attend the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul. To promote voter registration, footage from WWE Superstars' activities at the conventions will be shown on Raw, ECW, and SmackDown. WWE.com will also provide continuing convention coverage, so be sure to keep checking here back often.
In addition to the Superstars' appearances, working hand-in-hand with Cable in the Classroom, WWE will provide footage for a series of videos for K-12 schools nationwide via Cable in the Classroom's free, online learning game, eLECTIONS: Your Adventure in Politics. eLECTIONS is a standards-based election simulation being used in classroom's nationwide featuring content from CNN Student News, C-SPAN and History.
When: Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2 p.m. (Mountain time)
Where: AT&T/Rock the Vote bus across the street from the Pepsi Center (14th St. and Stout St.)
