If you need a ride to the polls on Election Day, organizations are stepping up to help get you there free of charge.

The non-profit Mi Familia Vota says volunteers and staff members will be using their own vehicles to bring people to the polls.

If you or someone you know is in need of a ride, you can call 833-VOTAMOS or 833-868-2667.

Yara Marin, Arizona Political Director for Mi Familia Vota, says they understand some residents don't have reliable transportation.

“If you know that you are going to need a ride on Tuesday to the polls, whether it’s before your morning shift or after work, call our hotline and we will have a volunteer or employee go ahead and get your information and arrange that ride for you," she said.

NextGen America is also providing free roundtrip rides through rideshare services if you sign up with them.

Uber and Lyft will also have discounted rates. For more information, click here.
