Outreach organization Voto Latino is teaming up with ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft to get voters to the polls, free of charge. Floridians can cash in their free ride by using the code GOVOTEFL in the apps, or by texting Go Vote to 73179. Voto Latino says democracy is at its best when everyone participates, and they are helping those in need exercise their civic duty. Data from University of Florida elections expert Daniel Smith shows Latinos are voting at historic levels. Demographics suggest these voters are favoring democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
