Uber can help you catch a ride, and register to vote.
Uber is partnering with TurboVote to help its community of riders, eaters, drivers, and delivery people register to vote or request a vote-by-mail ballot through the Uber and Uber Eats apps. It’s part of Uber’s “Get Out the Vote” campaign, which focuses on National Voter Registration Day (Sept. 22) and Election Day (Nov. 3).
“As we quickly approach the 2020 Presidential Election during what continues to be an unprecedented year, we’re working to ensure every eligible American citizen, regardless of what barriers they face, has access to vote,” Uber said in a statement.
Uber will also help people find their polling location within the Uber app, and offer discount rides to and from the polls.
“As we look ahead to this year’s election, we are committed to doing our part to make sure every citizen has access to vote,” Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said, adding that, “In addition to providing resources on the Uber and Uber Eats platforms to help individuals register to vote and get to the polls, we are proud to announce that we are also giving employees the day off, feeding people in line to vote, and looking into other ways to unite the communities we serve on Election Day.”
Just don’t forget your mask when you call a ride or head to the polls.
