You’ve done your democratic duty. You’ve voted. But what do you get out of it besides that little “I Voted!” sticker? (Well, obviously besides electing a new president of the United States.) Here’s a list of freebies and discounts to sweeten the deal.
Transportation problems getting to the polls? Too many to list but if you need a ride in order to vote there are many companies and public transit providing free rides. Just Google “free ride election day.” Participating companies including Uber, Lyft, Google, Zipcar and Maven are offering special discounts or promotions to enable voters of all ages to get to their polling places on time. Many public transit systems will be free that day as well.
Child care issues? YMCA Free Child Care The YMCA is offering free child care services at participating locations around the country on Nov. 8.
