Uber to offer free rides to polling places

Here’s what’s up – you can vote in the Mid-term elections on November 6th. It’s a big day guys, and if you can, you should get out there and exercise your right to vote!

 

The good news?  Uber’s making it easier to do just that. The company is joining up with #VoteTogether and Democracy Works to provide FREE rides to polling places.

 

Anyone with an Uber account can find their local polling place and book a ride to get there for free (in markets where Uber is available). The promotion will be available to all users, and will launch automatically when you open the app.

 

From the Sauce, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi;

 

“Using our technology and resources, we can help make it easier for every Uber rider in the U.S. to get to their polling place at the push of a button. We’re also partnering with nonprofit organizations to register voters before state deadlines and provide free rides to the polls on November 6.”

 

To help get people registered before their state’s deadline, Uber is already featuring in-app tools for customers to use to go through the process.

 

So, Uber –> Vote –> Celebrate!
