Uber Offers FREE(DOM) RIDE on Election Day!

November 5, 2012 / Atlanta

On November 6th, we all have some big decisions to make as we decide on the next President of the United States. One decision you shouldn’t have to make is how you’ll get to the polls.

That’s why Uber is teaming up with Rock the Vote to offer all voters in America who’ve never tried Uber, a “Freedom Ride” to their polling place. Unlike Paul Revere, your horse will be a sleek black town car or SUV, and will be free for 1st time riders on Election Day. The discount will be available during voting hours on November 6th (that’s tomorrow!!). With the ease of Uber’s service, you’ll feel like we’re bringing the ballot to you!

How do I get it?!

  • Go to the iTunes Store or Google Play and download the Uber app
  • Sign-up and enter promo code VOTEUBER
  • Now you’re ready to request and ride!

A few additional things to keep in mind:

  • One FREE(DOM) RIDE is available for any first time Uber client up to $20.12 off
  • The Uber trip must begin or end at a national polling location and is valid during voting hours on Tuesday, November 6.
  • The first $20.12 of your trip will be FREE, and any amount exceeding $20.12 will be charged to your card on file.
  • The FREE RIDE requires an Uber account and use of Uber’s iPhone/Android app or m.uber.com mobile web request.

I’m an existing Uber-er – what about me?!
