Very soon we will know who will be the next president of the United States. With the countdown to the election in full force, modern politics has combined with technology to help shape the social landscape with Carpool2Vote.com and the first-ever free ride-sharing app to the polls. The non-partisan app seeks to empower women voters and increase voter turnout by connecting voters needing a ride to the polls and by inspiring civic engagement.
To celebrate we are launching the Women Votes Youtube Channel today with a power series of public service announcements created by the Fall 2016 Class at the Washington Media Institute to further help spread the word and share their millennial voices. See our official launch videos below:
A Call To Action is now in progress to recruit drivers and riders across the United States to download the Carpool2Vote app and sign up.
As a volunteer-based initiative, the more drivers that exist means the more people Carpool2Vote can help to the polls on November 8th.
