"Ours is not the struggle of one day, one week, or one year. Ours is not the struggle of one judicial appointment or presidential term. Ours is the struggle of a lifetime, or maybe even many lifetimes, and each one of us in every generation must do our part."
This year, no matter how you choose to cast your vote, access to transportation should not be a barrier. But 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. COVID-19 has added even more complexities to exercising the right to vote — whether you vote by mail, drop your ballot at a collection site, or vote in person. Polling sites are consolidating and fewer people are volunteering to be poll workers due to health safety concerns.
We know not everyone has access to affordable transportation. So this Election season, we’re expanding the “Ride to Vote” work we began in 2018 to offer even more free and discounted rides to the polls. On Election Day, we are offering 50% off one ride up to $10 to any polling location or dropbox using the code 2020VOTE*. For the first time, this offer also includes our network of bikes and scooters in select cities. We’re working with When We All Vote, Vote.org, and other partners to provide our community with the tools they need to register to vote.

At Uber, we believe every eligible American citizen should have access to vote, and we know that we are uniquely positioned to help move people to the polls. That’s why we’ve been working hard to ensure everyone – regardless of what barriers they face – has access to vote. In September, we announced a commitment to help get folks registered to vote, and today, with the 2020 Presidential Election less than one month away, we’re announcing further efforts to help get people to the polls and feed them along the way.
