New program offers free rides to the polls for Cleveland residents

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A new program is making sure Cleveland residents can cast their vote.

The program is called VoterDrive.

All you have to do is contact VoterDrive and a driver from the program will pick you up and take you to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections to cast your vote early.

On Election Day, you will be able to get a ride to your polling location.

All rides are free.

While this service is only for Cleveland residents, anyone who lives in Cuyahoga County can volunteer to be a driver.

Cleveland resident Paula Kampf came up with the idea of VoterDrive.

“It’s such a meaningful to be able to remove obstacles because democracy only works if everyone can participate in it,” Kampf said.

If you have any disabilities, volunteers will work with you to meet your needs.

You can get involved with VoterDrive by visiting their website or calling them at 216-294-4261.
