COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM)- Election day is around the corner and the Urban League would like to make sure every citizen who needs it, has access to free transportation for an opportunity to go vote.
The Urban League is a nonprofit organization who serves the community in any way they can.
The Urban League of Greater Columbus in partnership with local churches, IMA, NAACP, and Davis Broadcasting has organized Roll to the Polls to accomplish the goal of transportation to the polls.
Local churches will provide a van and a driver on Election Day to provide free rides for citizens without transportation.
The Urban League will serve as the call center, dispatching vans to pick up citizens from their residence, and after voting the citizens will be taken back to their residence. Drivers will be dispatched every hour from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Registered voters can call the Urban League at 706-322-6840 in advance or on voting day request a ride to the polls.
