Lyft is offering free rides for people who aren’t able to get to their polling place during the 2020 primaries. “Every citizen who wants to exercise their fundamental right to vote should have reliable, affordable access to the polls — regardless of income, age, zip code, or political affiliation,” Lyft said in a statement on their company blog. “Yet in the last presidential election, it’s estimated that more than 15 million eligible voters didn’t go to the polls in large part because they lacked a way to get there.”

Lyft has partnered with League of Women Voters, National Federation of the Blind, Student Veterans of America, National Urban League, and Voto Latino Foundation to distribute ride vouchers.
