How to get a ride to the polls in Charlotte on Election Day

- Do you have a plan for how you’re getting to the polls on Tuesday, November 6?

Multiple services are offering discounted and even free transportation to the polls on Election Day, so to help Charlotteans find their way to the polls - FOX 46 has rounded up the options we could find.

Carpool Vote

This national organization matches those in need of a ride with volunteer drivers, and does list services available in the Charlotte metro area. Call 804-424-5335 or fill out this form to request a ride. Click here for Carpool Vote's story. 

Lyft

The rideshare service is offering 50 percent off a ride to the polls (up to $5). Like Lyft, it doesn’t cover a return trip. Promo codes are unique, so enter your zip code here to get yours.

Uber

This rideshare service is offering $10 off a ride to the polls (but not home, unfortunately). The discount is also only offered on the cheapest available option, so Express Pool, Pool, and UberX “in that order” according to the company’s website. Be sure to enter promo code VOTE2018 into the app to claim the offer.

Lime

Need a little extra help getting to your polling place but not enough to hail a car? You can get one free Lime scooter ride (up to 30 minutes) using promo code LIME2VOTE18. This can get you to the polls and potentially back depending on how long the journey and polling line is -- you can “pause” a Lime trip using the app to keep your scooter from being snagged while you vote, but it will keep the meter running so to speak, counting toward your 30 free minutes. But once time’s up, it’s only $1, plus $0.15 for each minute.
