RACINE — Racine native and NBA All-Star Caron Butler is using his voice to encourage people to vote this election season.

We has partnered with Now This! to create various PSA's giving Wisconsin voters the information they need to vote.
"Just be engaged. I'm not telling you who to vote for. You are responsible for the people that represent you in these elected positions, and if they don't identify or have the pulse of community and some of your concerns you have the right to you know vote and you know move the needle on change that you want to see," Butler said.

He says that the visuals of seeing what happened to George Floyd was a wake up call for many people in the U.S. Now, he hopes to turn all those who were passionately protesting to the polls this November.

Butler was selected to two All-Star teams in 06/07 and 07/08. He won a NBA championship with the Dallas Mavericks in the 2010/11 season. He even played for his hometown team, the Bucks, in the 2013/14 season.
