Ride free to the polls with your voter ID

Posted On: October 29, 2018

Getting to the polls this election season will be a little easier for Volusia County voters. Votran and the Volusia County Elections Office are partnering to offer free rides to the polls for registered voters. Transportation to the general election polls on Nov. 6 will be provided free to Votran riders with a valid voter ID. For voter information and to locate your precinct, visit www.volusiaelections.org

“We are excited to partner with Votran again,” said Lisa Lewis, Volusia County’s supervisor of elections. “This program opens the voting process to residents who have may otherwise be unable to vote due to lack of transportation. This is a great example of county services working together.”

The “Ride free with your voter ID” program also is available to residents registered with Votran’s Gold Service. Gold Service users must schedule their trip a day in advance. Gold Service is available to persons who, because of physical or mental disability or age, are unable to transport themselves and cannot use fixed-route bus service.
