Uber of­fer­ing free rides to vote on Elec­tion Day

South Florida Sun-Sentinel Palm Beach (Sunday) - - LOCAL - By Doreen Chris­tensen South Florida Sun Sentinel

Uber is get­ting out the vote by of­fer­ing free rides to the polls on Nov. 6.

The com­pany will be in­stalling a "Get to the Polls" but­ton in the free Uber app which will help vot­ers iden­tify their poll places and book a ride on Elec­tion Day. Uber re­minds customers to make sure they down­load the most up­dated ver­sion of its app.

"De­ci­sions get made by those who show up," said Dara Khos­row­shahi in an Uber blog post. "This Elec­tion Day, Uber will be do­ing what we can to make it eas­ier for peo­ple to do just that. On Novem­ber 6, I hope every­one does one thing: vote!"

Uber also worked with non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tions to help reg­is­ter vot­ers be­fore state dead­lines, the com­pany said.
