Free Rides on Election Day (11.06)
Lextran offers free rides on Election Day, Nov. 6
Lextran will offer free rides on all routes Tuesday, Nov. 6, to increase access to polling locations for the general election.
The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement estimated that nearly 15 million people between the ages of 18 and 29 didn’t vote in the 2016 Election because of a lack of transportation to their polling location.
“Transportation can be a barrier for some people when it comes to getting to their polling location,” said Carrie Butler, Lextran General Manager. “By providing free rides on Election Day we help remove one barrier and empower more people in our community to vote.”
The polls are open from 6:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, and individuals can find their polling locations by visiting this link: https://vrsws.sos.ky.gov/vic/.
