The midterm elections are right around the corner and Uber is stepping up to help riders find their local polling places on Election Day with a single tap. They’re also partnering with nonprofit organization When We All Vote to help get both riders and drivers registered to vote.
Uber has also partnered with #VoteTogether and Democracy Works to provide riders with free rides to their polling places throughout the country.
Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said in a statement that “between now and Election Day, we’ll be hosting voter registration drives at more than 125 U.S. Greenlight Hub locations around the country to help register as many eligible voters as possible before their state’s deadline. These driver support centers will have local registration resources on hand, so drivers and delivery partners—or anyone else who wants to—can come easily register to vote in person.”
Khosrowshahi also added, “Decisions get made by those who show up. 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!”
