RPT offering free rides to polling places on Election Day

(ABC 6 News) – Rochester Public Transit is making it easier for voters in Rochester to get to the polls on Election Day.

On Tuesday, November 8 anyone using public transit to get to their polling place may do so for free. Riders can simply tell the driver that purpose of the trip is to cast a vote and no fare will be charged. Polling places are open from 7am to 8pm. Free rides are available an hour before polls open and until an hour after they close.

The Minnesota Secretary of State’s office offers a Polling Place Finder which provides important voting information, including the location of your polling place. Find that here: https://pollfinder.sos.state.mn.us/
