Our office has heard of a few options for residents who are unable to drive themselves to the polls on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Both the local Democratic and Republican committees have volunteers providing free rides, and state that they will be operating in a nonpartisan manner; your driver should not ask for whom you are voting. Both Lyft and Uber will be offering rides at 50% off their normal fares. See details for each of these options below. You may also check with your place of worship to see if it is organizing volunteers. To help minimize the risk of COVID-19 for yourself or your driver, please plan to ride in the back passenger seat, wear a mask and expect that the windows may cracked to promote airflow.
