Lyft, Uber offering free and discounted rides on Election Day

Popular ride-sharing companies Lyft and Uber are offering their passengers discounted, and in some cases free, rides on Election Day.

Lyft teamed up with various voting organizations, such as Vote.org and TurboVote, to distribute a 50% promotion code to riders on their mobile app.

Uber is offering $10 off one ride to the polls on Election Day, thanks to their partners #VoteTogether and Democracy Works. Riders will have to take the most affordable option available in their city (Express Pool, Pool or UberX, in that order).

You can enter the promotional code is VOTE2018 in your Uber app to get the discount (the promotion is not available in Michigan).

When requesting your ride, you must use Uber's "polling place locator" and go directly to your polling place.

The discounts are available for voters heading to and from the polls on November 6.
