Don’t have a ride to the poll? Here are voter transportation options

Local

Kansans are set to cast their vote tomorrow in the the 2018 General Election. However, many voters might not know how they will be getting to the polls.

Parties and ridesharing companies are going the extra mile to get voters to the polls.

The Sedgwick County Democratic and Republican parties are offering free transportation to and from the polls, a service offered in past years.

Voters need to call the party office to schedule a ride. Party officials said people can call on Election Day, but the earlier the better. Several volunteers are on hand who will drive voters to their polling locations.

Here are the numbers you need to know:

  • Sedgwick County Democratic Party: (316) 500-7866
  • Sedgwick County Republican Party: (316) 302-5480
