MILWAUKEE — Souls to the Polls, an alliance of Milwaukee inner-city churches, is offering free Lyft and Uber rides to the polling places and back home for voters.

The free rides will be available during early voting from Oct. 20 - Nov. 1 and on Election Day, Nov. 3.

Souls to the Polls has set up a Rides Hotline staffed by volunteers to make reservations and arrange pick-ups at home and from the polls.

The Hotline began Oct. 20 and is open 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. on weekends.

Volunteers at the Hotline will also be assisting voters, making sure they have valid ID and other identification paperwork.

COVID-19 precautions are taking place to make sure passengers will be protected.

You can schedule your ride to the polls by calling the hotline at 414-246-1823.

If you have any other questions about the Souls to the Polls Free Ride Share program, you can call campaign leader Norma Balentine at 414-383-1821 or email her newporttoday@gmail.com.
