GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Some people are having issues getting to the polls, so Democracy N.C. is there to help.
The group is offering free rides to the polls for anyone who needs it, and thousands have already taken advantage of the service across the state.
“I give them a call, find out where they are and what time they want to vote, and we just kind of work it out,” said Marques Thompson, regional field organizer for the group. “ I love it because we’re helping democracy. And this is the most important thing; helping people get their voice heard.”
The free rides are available from now until November 5 when early voting ends.
Rides will also be given on Election Day.
