Article after article is being written about how Uber “drives the vote.” Uber has announced that they will help voters participate in election day by partnering with nonprofit organizations to register voters and by providing free rides to local polling stations.

“Decisions get made by those who show up,” said Uber in their election day ride share initiative announcement. That’s right. But how are Uber drivers going to show up if they don’t have the paid time off to vote?

It was only after Uber rival Lyft announced that it would be offering free and reduced rate rides to the polls that Uber made the same decision. Now Lyft has announced that it has taken the pledge on ElectionDay.org to offer its drivers resources so that they are able to exercise their civic duty and vote. 

Demand that Uber give their drivers paid time off to vote.

America has relatively low voter turnout compared to other countries, and there are several reasons why this might be. One of the largest factor is that Election Day is held on a Tuesday, and there are many people who just don't have the means to take time off to travel to their polling center and vote.

Uber riders need to be able to get to polls — but so do Uber drivers. Add your voice in telling Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi to give Uber drivers paid time off to vote.
