Lime will offer free scooter rides on Election Day as part of its effort to turn out the vote.

The company will offer free rides to polling places in all cities where it operates, including the Twin Cities, as part of the Roll Call initiative. “Lime to the Polls” was also available in 2018 during the Midterm elections.

Riders can use the code LIMETOTHEPOLLS2020 for two free 30 minutes rides on Election Day.

Lime is also encouraging riders to vote through a partnership with When We All Vote. Riders will be prompted to register to vote through in-app messages.

“Lime is committed to doing everything we can to help people register to vote and safely get to the polls -- whether that’s by mail or in person,” Lime CEO Wayne Ting said in a statement.

"Roll Call builds on our successful 2018 ride to the polls effort to help break down transportation barriers, and this year we’re excited to do more."

Lime is also calling on members of Congress to provide local election officials adequate resources to make voting accessible and expand early voting.
