Need A Ride To Cast Your Ballot? Here’s Some Help With That

Ride sharing companies are making it easier for voters without vehicles to cast ballots on Election Day.

Uber and Lyft are offering free and discounted rides to polling locations in Colorado.

There are some strings attached to the deals, though. A ride with Uber is free if the fare doesn’t exceed $10. And the Lyft rides are being offered to most voters at a 50 percent discount. An Uber spokesman said the company is paying the drivers for rides they give to the polls.

In Denver, you can even rent one of those new Lime electric scooters for free and zip on down to the ballot box.
