Edited to say:

I took the FREE Uber ride to the polls this morning! Here is how it went:

After entering the promo code into my app I clicked “Find My Polling Station” which offered a choice of TWO polling stations near me. After selecting my choice of voting venue I chose the cheapest riding option available (choose the option marked $0). In my case, it was the Uber Pool option. That said, after 5 minutes of the app trying to pair me with other riders heading in my direction, my Uber simply showed up at my door and delivered me downtown like a regular UberX. Absolutely FREE of charge. Please note, if the app IS able to pair you with other riders heading in your direction you may have to walk a short distance to catch the ride.

Underway, I was curious as to whether the driver would be paid for his efforts and, as I was his first FREE ride to the polls of the day, we both waited until my ride was complete to find out. The driver was happy to report that he, in fact, WAS PAID for my FREE ride. So, if you are having trouble getting to the polls today use your FREE ride. And, it is a beast of a ballot, so plan to spend at least 45 minutes on it.
