Make your mark with Uber!

August 3, 2017 / Kenya

Election day is around the corner and it’s almost time to cast your vote! #KenyaElections2017

Uber celebrates the cities we serve, and one of the best ways to engage with our communities is to encourage both riders and drivers to vote. On 8 August 2017, we all have some big decisions to make for the general elections in Kenya. One thing you shouldn’t have to worry about is how you’ll be getting to the voting station!

This is why we’re giving all riders 200KES off of all trips to and from voting stations in Nairobi and Mombasa on Tuesday, 8 August. We are also offering free rides to and from polling stations for persons living with disabilities in Nairobi, Thika and Mombasa, so that they too can make their mark.

Tick the boxes and get riding:

  • Open the Uber app
  • Go to ‘Payment’ on the app Menu
  • Under ‘Promotions’, click on ‘Add Promo/Gift Code’
  • Enter VOTEKE17 and click on the ADD button
  • When you’re ready to get voting on Election Day, request a ride as usual
  • Get up to 200KES off your trip to and from your voting station

The Fine Print:

  • Riders must enter the code VOTEKE17 to get up to 200KES off their next two rides.
  • The promotion is open to both new and existing Uber riders in Nairobi and Mombasa.
  • The code will apply between 6am and 6pm on Tuesday, 8 August 2017.

Spread the word

Once you’re done voting, don’t forget to tell us why your vote mattered by using the #UberVoteKE on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Help us spread the word so that more people can have their voices heard this Election Day!
