Votran ensuring voters can get to the polls
October 27, 2020
Individuals wishing to vote in person this Nov. 3 shouldn’t be hindered due to lack of transportation. That’s why Votran and the Volusia County Elections Office are once again partnering to offer free rides to the polls for registered voters. Transportation to the general election polls on Nov. 3 will be provided free to Votran riders with a valid voter ID.

“Our team works year-round to promote voter participation, and this partnership helps to further those efforts” said Lisa Lewis, Volusia County’s supervisor of elections. “The program ensures that residents who may otherwise be unable to vote in person due to lack of transportation are able cast their vote in their preferred manner. 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 and advise the reservationist that the trip is for voting. 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.
