Uber, Lyft offer free rides to polls for midterm elections

(FOX News) -- Ride-sharing companies are offering free or discounted trips to the polls for the upcoming midterm elections. Uber announced Thursday it's partnering with Democracy Works and #VoteTogether to provide free rides for voters in November.

Additionally, Uber will add a feature to help users locate their exact polling place.

"With the 2018 elections around the corner, many organizations and companies across the country are going the extra mile to support our democratic process. At Uber, we want to do our part, too -- by helping voters register and get to the polls on Election Day," Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said in a blog post.

Lyft already announced in August it would offer free or discounted rides to its customers on Election Day. Users can either receive a 50 percent off promo code through some of Lyft's partners or get a free ride if they reside in an "underserved" community.
