NORWOOD, Ohio — Need a free Uber to the polls?
Well, it’s not exactly Uber.
The NAACP provided shuttles to the Hamilton County Board of Elections Saturday as a part of their Souls to the Polls initiative.
Terence Gragston, committee chair for Voteless People Hopeless People, said volunteers took calls from their hotline and drove people who need a lift to the Board of Elections.
“(I) can’t stress enough the importance of voting,” Gragston said. “People don’t understand that them voting is part of their interest. It’s their voice. That’s their way of letting the local officials know what they can expect of them.”
Shuttles ran from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Gragston said they will shuttle people to the polls again on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
