Need a Ride to the Polls?
Rideshare2Vote is now offering free rides to the polls for Akron voters.
The organization said it wants to increase voter turnout in an off-presidential year primary, which will take place May 3. Now, with a split primary due to redistricting delays, voter turnout is expected to be even lower than usual.
Early voting is already underway at the Summit County Board of Elections Early Voting Center, 500 Grant St., Akron.
Interested voters can schedule their free ride at https://booking.rides2vote.com or by calling 888-977-2250.
Volunteer opportunities are also available for drivers at rideshare2vote.com.
