Well, that is a very neighborly thing to do.

Uber said Thursday that it will offer free rides to polling stations on Election Day, as well as an in-app feature that lets riders know where to cast their votes.

The ride-sharing company unveiled its “Get to the Polls” feature as part of a series of initiatives to encourage riders to vote in the midterm elections on Nov. 6. Riders can enter their home address into the app, which will then identify their designated polling place.

In addition, Uber is partnering with Democracy Works and #VoteTogether to provide free rides to voters, who must first obtain promo codes from one of the voting advocacy groups.

The Uber app also will provide information throughout the next few weeks on how users can register to vote. Uber started including the information earlier this week in partnership with the When We All Vote initiative.

Keep in mind that Uber is not telling any of their passengers how to vote, just helping them get to where they need to be to vote. 

However historically the larger the number of voters, the more progressive the results.
