Election Day is tomorrow, and hopefully a civic-minded gesture by Uber will boost Bexar County's typically dismal voter turnout rate.

Uber is offering free rides to and from the polls tomorrow. Just use the promo code “TexasVOTES” to order a free lift to the ballot box.

There are a couple of catches though. The offer is only valid for first-time riders. And there's a $15 limit for each ride. Still, it's a pretty good deal if you haven't used Uber yet.

Not sure where to vote? Check out the Bexar County Elections site for polling places and any other pertinent information.

And while you’re at it, it probably couldn’t hurt to brush up on the seven constitutional amendments on the ballot this year. We’ve summarized them for you in this useful blog.
