The ride-share apps Uber and Lyft have announced plans to offer free and discounted rides to the polls on November 6.

Lyft made the announcement back in August, while Uber released its statement last week.

Lyft is working with Vote.org and Turbo Vote to provide users with discounted rides, as well as partnering with the nonpartisan, nonprofit group Vote Latino.

Uber is partnering with Hashtag Vote Together and Democracy Works to provide similar options for riders.

Uber will also offer a “get to the polls button” the day of to help voters quickly find their polling place.
