and Armed Services YMCA offering free childcare to San Antonio parents on Election Day


  • Pexels / Pixabay and the Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) will offer free childcare to parents on Election Day at two San Antonio locations.

Time is of the essence, however, because pandemic-related capacity guidelines and staffing limitations will only allow for the families of 20 children per facility — that's 40 children total — to take advantage.

Registration is open via the ASYMCA website, where parents can reserve a free four-hour spot for their kiddos paid for by, a company that helps families locate childcare.

After registering and reserving a time slot, parents can drop their kids off at their designated ASYMCA location — either the Mays Family YMCA at Potranco or Thousand Oaks Family YMCA in Northeast San Antonio — and head to the polls to vote on November 3.

Parents will need to show identification upon arrival, and all participants must pre-register online to comply with COVID-19 occupancy restrictions.
