Uber Partnering With Leftist Nonprofit to Give Free Rides to Polls on Election Day
Another leftist ride-sharing company will provide free rides to polling stations on Nov. 6 in an attempt to get Democrat candidates elected.
“Uber is partnering with Democracy Works and #VoteTogether to provide promo codes for free rides to voters across the U.S. on Nov. 6. Riders will be able to look up their designated voting location by entering their home address into the app,” according to Fortune.
Democracy Works, as expected, is a left-of-center organization run by founder and former eBay CEO Pierre Omidyar, who donated $450,000 to Super PACs that worked to stop President Donald J. Trump’s election in 2016.
America’s other large ride-sharing service, Lyft, is also working with leftist nonprofits to bring people to the polls on election day.
Big League Politics reported:
First reported by Far Left Watch, ride-sharing company Lyft has announced a partnership with an anti-Trump non-profit that will provide free rides to polling stations for Latino voters on election day.
“For underserved communities, we’ll provide rides free of cost through nonpartisan, nonprofit partners, including Voto Latino, local Urban League affiliates, and the National Federation of the Blind,” according to the company’s website.
Voto Latino is a demonstrably anti-Trump non-profit. According to an Open Secrets report, the group spent all $1.3 million in its coffers against President Donald J. Trump’s campaign in 2016.
Uber noted that its free rides are not contingent upon voting in a certain manner, or even voting at all.
“Any promo codes or free rides under the Uber Drives the Vote program are offered to individuals by our partner organizations and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations, subject to Uber’s terms and conditions. Any such offer is not intended to induce, nor is it conditioned on, the act of voting, refraining from voting or voting for or against any particular candidate, political party or measure,” the company said.
