Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse says the organization will open its home arena for U.S. voter registration ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

"A lot of teams are using their arenas in the states as voting centres. We obviously we can't do that, but we are going to open up Scotiabank (Arena) later on next week," Nurse told reporters Thursday. "I don't have the exact dates, maybe one or two days next week for U.S. citizens to come in and register."

The Raptors have been involved in a campaign to encourage U.S. citizens living in Canada to vote in the election. According to the Federal Voting Assistance Program, there were approximately 78,000 eligible U.S. voters living in Toronto in 2016.

"It's very cool on everybody's part to do that," Nurse said.
