We celebrate the cities we serve and one of the best ways to contribute back to our community is to encourage riders and drivers to vote. Today, we are pleased to announce that we are collaborating with Election Commission of India and Chief Electoral Office of Gujarat for the upcoming Gujarat assembly elections. Through this collaboration, we aim to spread awareness amongst the Uber riders and drivers about voting, it’s importance and get them to the polls on Election Day.
This ongoing joint campaign will also allow lakhs of riders and drivers to access voter information through the voter guide. Through email and notification in the Uber application, we will provide necessary information to help Uber riders and drivers vote. Additionally, we will make the information available to driver-partners at support centres in Ahmedabad, Surat and Vadodara.
Shri Lalit Padalia, Additional Chief Electoral Officer, Gujarat said “Voter awareness is critical for informed decision making and furthering of the democratic process. Uber’s initiative in spreading our message to lakhs of eligible voters will assist us in our mission to ensure-No voter is left behind”
We want to provide Uber riders and drivers with everything they need to know about the importance of voting, and where to go on election day, right at their fingertips.
This is a historic election and we plan to spend days leading up to Election Day making sure every eligible Uber rider and driver has the opportunity to get involved. Take a few minutes and check out the Voters Guide that will help you understand what you need to do, register to vote, and make your voice heard this December.

Spread the word
In keeping with the spirit of picking winners, here is a little contest of our own: since we are all about self-expression here at Uber, once you are done voting, Tweet, Facebook or Instagram your selfie with #UberVotesForGUJ and show your support towards the initiative. The best entries walk away with exciting prizes. Help spread the word so more citizens can have their voices heard on Election Day!
