Free Rides on Election Day 11.05.19
All Lextran routes will be free of charge on Tuesday, Nov. 5 to increase access to polling locations on Election Day.
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.
“Exercising your right to vote should not be hindered by a lack of transportation,” said Carrie Butler, Lextran General Manager. “That is why we are offering free rides on Election Day, to better connect people to their polling locations and empower them to participate in these important elections.”
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/.
