“To increase encourage voter turnout, Lyft will offer free rides to people in underserved communities that day by working with Voto Latino, the Urban League and the National Federation of the Blind. Lyft is also teaming up with Vote.org, Nonprofit Vote, TurboVote and others to give away 50% off promo codes to riders. Riders can get help finding their polling location through the Lyft app.”
This is really cool. It’d be nice if this weren’t necessary, but this is a great way to help get more people out there who wouldn’t be able to ordinarily. Hopefully the results of this election will allow us to start tackling some of the suppression efforts that make this a necessity in the first place.
