Need A Ride To The Polls Tomorrow? Uber & Lyft Have You Covered
Election day is tomorrow! Make sure you exercise your rights as an American and VOTE! The polls open tomorrow at various locations throughout WNY, but maybe you can't figure out how you're getting there?
According to WGRZ, Uber and Lyft are here to help you get to and from the polls on Election day, November 6th. Last year, it was estimated that nearly 15 million people were registered to vote in 2016 but couldn't make it to the polls because of lack of transportation (CIRCLE study cited by Lyft in a blog post.)
This year, both ride sharing companies Lyft and Uber are offering discounted rides for voters to and from the polls. If you need to get a ride during the midterm elections, here are the promo codes you'll need to know:
Vote.org and TurboVote teamed up with Lyft to bring you a 50% off promotion code to riders on their mobile app.To access your promo code, click here.
