Gael knows what’s up.

If you’re a current Uber or Lyft user, text GO VOTE to 73179 to see if Voto Latino is offering free rides in your state.

Because of the limited number of cars and limited funds, free rides aren’t guaranteed. But there are workarounds if your state is not participating.

Existing Uber customers can “score free rides by referring new riders.”

According to Uber’s website, all you have to do is “share your personal code and get a free trip worth up to $20 when friends take Uber.” Here’s the link for that.

First-time Uber users will receive up to $22 on their first trip.

New users are encouraged to share their ride to the polls with other voters. If you’re worried about getting back home or to work, you can sign someone else up, or get the person you shared your ride with to cover the ride with their credit.

First-time Lyft users can sign up for a $50 credit that will cover the costs of getting to and from the polls, as long as you’re in an eligible market.

Here’s the LINK TO VOTE. And if you don’t need a ride, but want to donate money for those who do, you can donate to “My Ride To Vote.”

The great thing about Uber is that you never know who your driver might be.
