In what appears to be an attempt to save face after drastically raising its black car service rates following Hurricane Sandy, Uber has announced that it will be giving new users free trips to voting stations on November 6th. Through the partnership with Rock the Vote, first-time Uber users can travel to or from their local polling locations free of charge. Of course, there are a few caveats: the ride(s) must begin or end at polling stations, they have to occur during voting hours, and the offer only applies to first-time users. Additionally, Uber only covers up to $20.12 in travelling fees; any amount above that must be paid by the customer. To take advantage of the deal, just enter the promo code "VOTEUBER" during the sign-up process via Uber's iPhone or Android app, or the service's mobile site.
