The NBA is doing its part to encourage Americans to vote in November's presidential election.

The league, in partnership with the NBPA, announced Tuesday that it has created warmup shirts with the word "VOTE" on the front that players will wear for the remainder of the playoffs.

Miami Heat and Boston Celtics players debuted the shirts in their team colors ahead of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

To date, 20 NBA teams have offered the use of their arenas or facilities as election voting sites.
