As part of their nationwide effort, “The Ride to Vote,” Lyft will offer discounted rides to voters returning their ballots to one of King County’s 66 ballot drop box locations on Election Day, Nov. 6.
Lyft rides on Election Day will also be available to King County’s Accessible Voting Centers for voters who require additional assistance, need a replacement ballot, or simply prefer to vote in person. Voters can use the discount code WA GOTV in their Lyft app on Election Day.
“Voting is too important for transportation issues to stand in one’s way,” said Julie Wise, Director of King County Elections. “So, I am very excited to partner with Lyft to help get voters to a ballot drop box on Election Day.”
King County voters should have already received their ballot in the mail. To get a replacement ballot, voters can go online or call King County Elections at 206-296-VOTE (8683).
King County Elections recommends voters mail their ballot by the Friday before Election Day to ensure it’s on time or return it to a ballot drop box by 8 p.m. on Nov. 6.
“At Lyft, we’re working to improve lives by connecting people and their communities through the world’s best transportation. This Election Day, we want to help people in the Seattle region exercise their right to vote,” said Todd Kelsay, General Manager for Lyft Pacific Northwest. “Every voice is important, and we’re excited to help make them heard in this year’s elections.”
