Why you should support My Ride to Vote

My Ride to Vote is seeking to fund free roundtrip rides to the polls for the runoff election in Georgia's Sixth Congressional District.   We need your help.

My Ride to Vote believes that all citizens, regardless of their political leanings or ideology, should be able to participate in the political process. Our mission is to provide rides to the polls on Election Day to voters for whom a ride would be the difference between voting and staying home.  These voters are often younger and lower income.

Last Tuesday, a record number of voters participated in the Georgia special election. Many of these voters were making their voices heard for the first time - perhaps because they were looking for a change in leadership. In a state that's repeatedly thrown up roadblocks preventing marginalized people from voting, will you contribute today to make sure that every citizen has an opportunity to cast a ballot?

The math is simple: $25 = 1 roundtrip ride. By donating $25 or whatever you can, you can ensure that at least one new voter has a voice in Georgia.  Election Day is June 20.

If we can raise  $100,000  by May 15, we can provide at least 4,000 rides for the early vote, which is when many of these new voters will go to the polls.

Can we count on your support?

    “This race is reverberating nationwide. It is energizing candidates, campaigns, supporters, voters and the media in many other crucial races. So you're leveraging your investment with strong ROI. Your $25 gets between 1-3 voters to the polls. (Much more direct than Plan B -- flying to GA-6 to canvass door-to-door, which would also be appreciated)!”

  • Karen Klvac Erwin endorsed

    “I think this is a HUGELY important task for one reason: everyone citizen in our country deserves to have a voice during an election. People who use public transportation can't get to polling venues because the venues are off the beaten path. I love that this affords everyone the right to vote!”
