The University of Florida, in collaboration with the Andrew Goodman Foundation Vote Everywhere Ambassadors and the Bob Graham Center for Public Service, will offer free transportation to the polls on Wednesday, Nov. 2, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Shuttles will provide roundtrip transportation for UF students from the J. Wayne Reitz Union Breezeway to the early voting polling site at the Supervisor of Elections Office, 515 N Main Street. In addition to the free shuttle service, pizza, activities and giveaways will be available for participants to enjoy while they wait.
“Many students, particularly those who live on campus, lack reliable transportation to get them to and from the polls,” said Ryan Mockabee, a Vote Everywhere Ambassador and lead organizer for the event. “By providing this free service to students, we hope to offer a hassle-free alternative to Election Day voting.”
Early voting locations are open every day — from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. — until Saturday, Nov. 5. Registered Alachua county voters can cast their ballot at any early voting site. For more information and to find where to early vote, visit http://www.votealachua.com/Voter-Information/Early-Voting.
