Election day is, of course, tomorrow and the polls open bright and early. Many older folks are no longer driving and need help getting to the polls. I hope that the younger generation will make the time to transport their friends or family members who can’t get to the polls. If a person doesn’t have a family member to drive them they might stay home and not vote. Every vote counts and ideally, everyone who is eligible to vote will be able to get to the polls to have a say in our democracy and keep it moving in the democratic direction people want.
Uber and Lyft have announced that they will provide free or reduced-fare rides one-way to polling places — though not back home, so planning is required. Here are some links to take advantage of this.
