To encourage more people to vote, Lyft, Uber and Lime are offering promotions Nov. 6 to help get voters to the polls.

Uber is offering $10 off rides to polling places. This one-day discount will only apply to the most affordable Uber option. A poll button will appear on the app and pinpoint voting sites. It will then prompt users with a special code.

Lyft is offering 50 percent off rides to polls. Additionally, drivers who give rides Nov. 6 will receive a gift. Roundtrips will not be discounted on either app.

Lime will provide free rides to polling places. By entering the code “LIME2VOTE18” on the app, scooters will be unlocked for up to 30 minutes.
