Don't Have a Ride to Vote? No Problem!

Tomorrow is a big day in our country as we are so fortunate to be presented with the right to vote, that being said we should all exercise it. However, transportation is not always available for all of us. No need to stress, as Uber has partnered with #VoteTogether and Democracy Works to provide voters with transportation to voting centers across the U.S.

According to Ben Botkin of The Denver Post; 

'Uber will have its app equipped Tuesday to allow users throughout the United States, including in Colorado, to find their voting center and get a free ride there. The move is part of a push Uber is making to help those who cannot vote because they lack transportation, the company said in a release.

The app will have a “get to the polls” button for users.

“Riders and drivers will receive in-app notifications reminding them to vote and providing them tools to identify and save their respective polling place,” Uber spokeswoman Stephanie Sedlak said in an email.

For the free rides, Uber is working with #VoteTogether and Democracy Works, two national nonpartisan organizations focused on increased voter participation."

I'm excited to see that such large corporations such as Uber are eager to help fellow peers get to the voting centers! No excuses this year folks, get out and exercise your right!
