Uber Offers Rides To Vote
Unless you've somehow avoided current affairs lately in which case, you're probably hyperaware that this year's midterm elections are a big deal. Uber decided to help to get people out to vote by offering free rides to polling locations.
The ride-hailing behemoth announced Thursday that on Tuesday, November 6, anyone with an Uber account can use its app to quickly find their polling place and book a ride to get there (in markets where Uber is available). The "Get to the Polls" button will be available to all users, and will launch automatically when they open the app. The company is teaming up with #VoteTogether and Democracy Works, which will be providing promo codes to redeem the free rides, and said it's hoping to use its vast resources to help support the democratic process.
