Twitch's latest move to expand beyond its game broadcasting bread and butter is to get you to the polls. Amazon's $970 million baby announced a partnership with TurboVote, a web app designed to make voter registration simpler; National Voter Registration Day is tomorrow, September 26th. To celebrate, a handful of Partnered streamers who will encourage viewers to register to vote, via a TurboVote (not to be confused with Twitch's own Turbo subscription) link. Those streams will be from 6pm to 8:30pm Eastern.
While it might seem odd -- especially during an off-year for voting -- Twitch has hosted both the Republican and Democrat National Conventions in addition to carrying former FBI chief James Comey's hearings and launching its News channel.
