Watch: Steph Curry teams up with Joe Biden to talk to Charlotte kids about voting


With less than four weeks until the presidential election, Warriors star Steph Curry teamed up with Joe Biden to deliver a message to youth in Charlotte, North Carolina: Register, and go vote.

In a video posted to Biden’s Instagram page, the 2020 presidential candidate visited a gym in Charlotte along with Thunder point guard Chris Paul who, like Curry, was born in North Carolina.

After entering to a smattering of cheers from socially-distanced children sitting in the gym’s bleachers, Biden and Paul FaceTimed with Curry, drumming up more excitement.

“Steph, how’s it going pal?” Biden said to Curry, who has publicly endorsed Biden’s campaign.

“Mr. Vice President, I’m doing great,” Curry replied.

Paul then encouraged the children, despite not yet being old enough to vote, to talk to their parents and friends about the importance of voting between now and Nov. 3’s general election.

“Y’all are the future right?” Paul said, “No, you’re the right now.”
