Lyft wants to help you do your civic duty, so it’s giving away free and discounted rides on November 6th. The ride-hailing firm has an existing free ride program for emergency situations and non-emergency ones involving veterans and job seekers. Now, it’s also teaming up with Vote.org, TurboVote and Nonprofit Vote — services that keep you informed about the elections — to distribute 50 percent off promo codes to those who need them. It’s also working with nonpartisan and nonprofit orgs, including Voto Latino and Urban League, to provide free rides to underserved communities in an effort to give them a way to exercise their right to vote these midterms.
