What to do on Election Day

What To Do On Election Day

Step Two: Figure out where you vote

We built this tool to make it easy for you.

Step Three: Get to the Poll.


Spin to the Polls:

CivicLex is partnering with Spin Bikes to provide free transportation to the polls!

The code will be SPINTOTHEPOLLS. It's worth $2, enough for two free thirty minute rides.. Here are the steps folks need to take to use the code:

  1. Using an iPhone or Android, download the Spin app.

  2. Open the app and follow the steps to create an account.

  3. Once your account is created, click on the menu icon in the top left of the screen and select "free rides" 

  4. Click the plus sign in the top left corner and enter "SPINTOTHEPOLLS". Click Add.

Your code will be live and your next two rides under 30 minutes will be free.


LexTran to the Polls:

CivicLex is also partnering with LexTran to provide free transportation to the polls!

Use LexTran’s handy website to plan a trip to your polling location, or download and use their app.


Rideshare to the Polls:

Lyft and Uber have gotten a lot of publicity for their free rides to the polls, but there’s a catch!

Step Four: Vote.

This is the most important step! Here’s what you should bring:

  • You will need to show ID, or be known personally by a precinct election officer, to vote in Kentucky.

    • Acceptable forms include: driver's license; Social Security card; ID issued by the US government; ID issued by the Kentucky government with picture; credit card; county-issued ID card approved in writing by the State Board of Elections; or another form of ID containing both picture and signature.

    • Voters without ID: If you are unable to provide ID, you will be able to vote a provisional ballot.

Remember your voting rights.

  • If you are in line to vote at 6pm, you must be permitted to vote, even if the polls close.

  • If your ID is rejected at the polls (or you don’t have one) you must be permitted to vote with a provisional ballot.

  • If you are working on Election Day, you may be entitled to a maximum of four consecutive hours off from work in order to vote or cast an absentee ballot if you make a request for time off with your employer.

Step Five: Thank your poll worker.

Poll workers work long, hard days! Make sure to thank them for their service!

Congrats! You just participated one of the most important roles of being a citizen.

But active citizenship doesn’t stop there. Take a day or two to rest (it’s been a long election season), and then get jump right in to active citizenship.

You can start here.
