The transit strike in Philadelphia has many voting advocates fearing that people who want to cast a ballot in the general election will not be able to do because of the lack of public transportation.

That news prompted a PAC in California to create an initiative called My Ride to Vote—something that has garnered more than $200,000 in donations as of Sunday afternoon.
Here’s how it works: If you want to vote in Pennsylvania (anywhere – not just Philadelphia), you can get a free ride to the polls from Uber or Lyft by entering the promo code VOTEPA.
