As worries about the transit strike in Philadelphia show, not everyone can walk to their polling place on Election Day. Now Uber and Google have teamed up to make the trip a bit easier. On Tuesday, the Uber app will feature a Google-powered search that automatically finds your polling place and orders a car to get you there. A reminder will pop up in the app on Election Day, encouraging users to vote and asking them to enter the address where they are registered. A car to get you to the polls will come shortly, they say.
