Lyft offers discount code for Election Day

Election Day is upon us, and a ride-hailing company is working to help voters cast their ballots.

Lyft is offering a 50 percent discount code for those heading to the polls today.

Riders can enter the code “VOTE22” for a discount of up to $10 for a trip to a polling place. The code can only be used during voting hours on Election Day — polls are scheduled to close in Nevada at 7 p.m. — and only for a trip to the polls.

“We believe that everyone’s voice – and vote – deserves to be heard, and transportation should never be a barrier,” Lyft said in a press release.
