SAN FRANCISCO - November 1, 2022 – Getaround, the world's leading digital peer-to-peer carsharing marketplace, announced today the launch of the Get2ThePolls initiative to help ensure that voters have access to transportation to go to the polls or drop off a ballot for the 2022 general election.
The Getaround Get2ThePolls program offers a 50% discount (up to a maximum $30 in savings) on bookings through the Getaround platform for trips in the United States on Election Eve, November 7, and Election Day, November 8 for the first 10,000 customers using promo code “GET2VOTE.”
“Inconvenience is one of the key reasons for low voter turnout in America, especially during the midterms. Getaround is uniquely positioned to help move people to the polls and ensure every eligible voter, regardless of the barriers they face, can cast their ballot,” said Sarah Bonk, Founder and CEO, Business for America. “With this initiative, Getaround demonstrates one important way in which the business community can help support a vibrant representative democracy.”

As a carsharing platform of the people, Getaround continues to demonstrate unparalleled commitment in providing our guests with access to affordable and convenient transportation. Getaround is removing potential barriers for getting to the polls and ultimately making it easier for people to exercise their right to vote.”
