Lime teams up with When We All Vote to ease transportation barriers and increase voter turnout by offering a free, sustainable and socially distant transportation option to and from polling places.
Lime is proud to once again provide free rides to and from the polls on Election Day, November 3, in an effort to reduce transportation barriers such as cost, lack of car ownership, and COVID-19-related concerns in cities throughout the country. Riders will be able to use the promotional code LIMETOPOLLS2020 to receive two free rides up to 30 minutes across all vehicles in the Lime app, including JUMP bikes, in the United States.
“This is the most important election of our lives,” said Wayne Ting, CEO of Lime. “Healthcare, climate change and the future of so many cities we serve are on the ballot in 2020. At Lime, we’re focused on doing all we can to register voters, ease access to polls, and encourage our riders to vote.”
Lime to the Polls expands on our partnership with When We All Vote, a nonpartisan voter registration organization, co-chaired by Michelle Obama. Earlier this year we teamed up When We All Vote to promote voter registration to riders within the Lime app.
"When We All Vote is on a mission to increase participation in every election by changing the culture around voting and closing race and age voting gaps," said Crystal Carson, Communications Director at When We All Vote. "Lack of transportation keeps far too many eligible voters from casting their ballot. We are proud to partner with Lime to make voting more accessible and break down transportation barriers by providing free, sustainable rides to the polls and helping Lime riders in cities across the country register to vote through the Lime app."
In 2018, we provided free rides to the polls on Election Day in 2018 for the U.S. midterm elections and ten percent of trips taken that day used the Lime to the Polls promo code, making it the most successful promotion in Lime’s history at the time. This year, we're doing more to help increase voter registration and turnout, close the poll worker gap, and protect local polling places from the impact of COVID-19.
