As part of this initiative, on Election Days in markets Bird operates, residents will be able to use a promotional code in the Bird app to unlock two complimentary 30-minute rides. The aim is to break down transportation barriers and ensure that every voice can be heard at the ballot box. This partnership will officially kickoff for the Memphis election on Thursday, Oct. 5th.
“As a company committed to creating sustainable and engaged communities, we recognize the importance of civic duty and the power of the vote,” said Stewart Lyons, President of Bird Global. “Our partnership with Rock the Vote reflects our commitment to foster civic engagement and ensure that all voices are heard.”
“Rock the Vote has always harnessed the latest trends and technology to empower young voters,” said Carolyn DeWitt, President and Executive Director of Rock the Vote. “Teaming up with Bird, we’re not just meeting young people where they are; we’re also ensuring young voters have the tools and resources they need to access the ballot and make their voices heard.”
The collaboration will also introduce a series of community events and initiatives across the country aimed at increasing voter registration and education. With the synergy of Bird’s vast user base and Rock the Vote’s expertise, the duo is setting out to make a significant impact in the 2023 elections with more exciting announcements to come in 2024.
Both organizations urge everyone to use their platforms to check their voter registration, engage with election-related content, and, most importantly, make their voices heard by casting their votes.
