Uber, Lyft To Give FREE Rides To Polls

In an attempt to get as many folks out to the polls as possible, Uber and Lyft are offering complimentary rides to vote this Election Day.

Uber is partnering with Democracy Works and #VoteTogether to provide promo codes for free rides to voters across the U.S. on Nov. 6. Riders will be able to look up their designated voting location by entering their home address into the app.

Lyft announced back in August it would also offer free and discounted rides to the polls on Nov. 6. Organizations including Vote.org and TurboVote will help distribute nationwide 50% off codes for the Lyft app.

Historically, midterm elections have the lowest voter turnout. Four in 10 eligible Americans vote in the midterms compared to six in 10 for presidential election years. Lyft pointed out an estimated 15 million people were registered but didn’t vote in 2016 because of transportation issues.
