Drive the Vote lets voters in supported areas request a free ride to their polling place. Campaigns and other get on the vote organizations in supported areas can also use it to pre-schedule rides for the people they serve.
Drive the Vote will be deployed in select swing races. If you live an area with a tight national race, are affiliated with a campaign organization or similar group, and are willing to devote significant time to organizing and training drivers and running a ride system, please contact [email protected].
It may not be too late! You can find state-by-state registration deadlines here. Also, thirteen states plus the District of Columbia offer same-day voter registration, allowing you to register and vote at the same time, on the day of the election. Learn where this is available, and the requirements, here.
Drive the Vote is produced by Ragtag, a team of tech volunteers who help activists, organizers, non-profits, and candidates break down tech barriers making it easier to achieve their organizing goals. Learn more at Ragtag.org.
Drive the Vote was originally part of DevProgress, and used in the 2016 elections in 3 cities.
