There is no doubt in anyone's mind the importance of the 2020 election. With the coronavirus pandemic still ravaging the United States, people are doing their best to avoid long lines and maintain social distancing by voting early. And while a lot of us may not give a second thought about how we're going to get to our nearest polling place, there are many in our community who simply do not have the means or the ability to drive themselves to the polls.

Fortunately, there are a number of resources available if you need a ride to the polls on or before Election Day. The Vanderburgh County Democratic Party have shared a list of several organizations and businesses that are offering free rides in hopes of helping as many people get to the polls as possible. If you need a ride, you can contact one of the following:
