We hope there will be more and more “get out the vote” free ride share options available alongside Carpool2Vote as we get closer to midterms!
We need American ingenuity and service to drive this and ensure all Americans have the opportunity to exercise their right to vote.

We hope there will be more and more “get out the vote” free ride share options available alongside Carpool2Vote that are 100% volunteer-driven as we get closer to midterms!
Carpool2Vote is a nonpartisan platform of Women Voters USA and was proudly developed in the USA!
As provided on the Lyft Blog:
“Across the country, we’ll give away 50% off promo codes with our partners that encourage voter turnout. We’re thrilled to be working with Vote.org, Nonprofit Vote, TurboVote and
more to help distribute codes to those who need them. We’ll also have a product integration to help passengers find their polling location. For under-served communities, we’ll provide rides free of cost through nonpartisan, nonprofit partners, including Voto Latino, local Urban League affiliates, and the National Federation of the Blind.”
Voters send a text or register online to request a ride, and Drive the Vote connects them with a volunteer driver who picks them up and takes them to their polling place. Drive the Vote will be deployed in select swing races. If you live an area with a tight national race, are affiliated with a campaign organization or similar group, and are willing to devote significant time to organizing and training drivers and running a ride system, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Drive the Vote is produced by Ragtag. Learn more at Ragtag.org.
