Lyft is offering ride discounts to get you, the stalwart Election Day voter, to the polls safely and quickly this Tuesday.

The rideshare giant is giving a 50 percent discount on a ride to the polls using the Election Day promotional code 2020VOTE.

This promo code is valid locally from 4 a.m.-11 p.m. on Tuesday only.

“Transportation should never be a barrier to getting to the polls, no matter how you choose to cast your ballot on Election Day – especially for those in underserved areas and those who need it most,” said Lyft exec Anthony Foxx in a press statement.

Find your polling place here at the Orange County Supervisor of Elections website, and get there tomorrow.
