Uber offering free rides to the polls on election day

On Nov. 6, if you find yourself without a way to the polls and still want to vote, Uber might be able to help you. The ride share service is offering free rides to the polls and here’s how it works.

From the Uber Newsroom:

  • Get to the Polls Button: On Tuesday, November 6, anyone in the U.S. will be able to quickly find their polling place and book a ride to go vote—with just a few taps in the Uber app. (Make sure you’re using the latest version of the app.)

  • Free Rides to the Polls: To help the millions of Americans who cite transportation barriers as the reason they don’t vote, we’ll be partnering with #VoteTogether and Democracy Works to provide free rides to the polls.
  • Helping Riders and Drivers Register to Vote: To help support voter registration efforts, Uber has partnered with When We All Vote to provide our customers with easy-to-use voter registration tools. Earlier this week, we began sharing registration resources with riders through the Uber app.

Pretty cool!
