With less than a month until the 2018 midterms, ridesharing companies Uber and Lyft have announced plans to offer free and discounted rides to the polls.
In partnership with #VoteTogether and Democracy Works, Uber will provide free rides to those who need transportation on Nov. 6. Customers will also be able to use the ‘Get to the polls’ button in their app to find their closest polling location.
As previously reported by HuffPost, Lyft will also offer free and discounted rides on Election Day. Voters nationwide are eligible for a half-off coupon code through voter registration groups, including Vote.org, Nonprofit Vote and TurboVote.
Nonpartisan groups, such as Voto Latino, Urban League and the National Federation for the Blind, also intend to help voters catch free Lyft rides to the polls in communities where they provide service
