How does Carpool Vote work?
Carpool Vote connects volunteer drivers with anybody who needs a ride to claim their vote.
Anybody can sign up to get a ride or to drive somebody: We welcome humans of any race or ethnicity, age, sex or gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, family situation, or religious or political belief.
Need a ride to claim your vote? Some of our riders need to get to the polls - either on polling day or during early voting. Others need to travel to get a photo I.D.
Whatever your situation, simply click the I need a ride button on the CarpoolVote.com home page and fill in your details.
You'll receive a message straight away confirming that we've received your request.
Our system will then match you with a driver, based on the information you've provided. This match will be based on when and where you need a ride, for how many people, and disability adjustments you may need.
You'll receive another message as soon as you've been matched. The driver will receive a similar email, including your contact information.
The driver will then contact you directly to arrange the details of the ride.
Please follow the instructions in our messages if you need to view or manage your ride request or your match with a driver. You can also use our online self-service portal.
