Free Rides to the Polls Available Tomorrow

Anderson County residents who need a ride to vote tomorrow have a few free and discount options available. 

The Anderson County Democratic Party is offering free rides to all voters. People wanting a ride should call a Dispatcher at (404) 550-8975 between 8 a.m.-Noon and (864) 933-7048 between Noon- 4 p.m. The dispatcher will ask you to provide your address and the polling place where you will be voting.

Meanwhile Uber and Lyft are offering discount rides to the polls. 

Uber will offer $10 off a single ride via its most inexpensive options, usually the Pool shared ride option, as well as a poll locator button in the app that will help route users to their polling place. 

Lyft is providing half-off rides nationwide through a partnership with nonprofits working to encourage civic engagement, and will offer codes for free rides, via partner groups, to underserved communities. 

Both require the installation of an app to use their services.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
