Ride Transit free on Election Day in Tucson

CITY OFFERS FREE RIDES ON ELECTION DAY

Free Transit Fares on November 6th on Sun Tran, Sun Link and Sun Van

The City of Tucson will offer free transit fares all day on Tuesday, November 6th, to make it easier for citizens to vote on Election Day.

“We want to make it as easy as possible for voters to get to the polls,” said Mayor Jonathan Rothschild. “The right to vote is so important, and we want to ensure that everyone who’s eligible to vote has the opportunity to vote.”

Everyone is welcome to ride Sun Tran, Sun Express, and the Sun Link streetcar for free.  For Sun Van paratransit passengers, rides will also be free.  Sun Shuttle and Sun Shuttle Dial-a-Ride are not participating in the Free-Ride Day, so those riders will pay the regular fare.

“Sun Tran’s comprehensive network of bus routes provides Tucson with a vital resource for citizens’ ability to exercise their right to vote,” said Sun Tran General Manager Steve Spade. “The service will help more people be able to have their voice heard.”

To find their polling place, registered voters can visit the Pima County Elections Department website.  The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Faced with a corrupt State Legislature and Supreme Court, Arizona voters will have the chance to fight back on 8 public initiatives.

Teachers, elected representatives, and a transportation official explained the merits of the ballot initiatives at the recent
Tanque Verde Valley Democratic Club meeting.

Arrayed against voters are dark money interests and self-dealing corporations that are already spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to sabotage ballot initiatives to fund public schools, renewable energy, and clean elections.

“I said that this Legislature is owned by dirty money on the state House floor, and I was gaveled down,” says state Rep. Pamela Powers Hannley. “We still have corruption in the state government.”

Echoing these remarks, Luci Messing, the chair of the Tanque Verde Democrats, says, “We have a very corrupt majority in the Legislature who are not looking out for us. We need to take them out. That’s why it’s so important we vote for people who are pro-education, pro-family and will do best for Arizona and not for their pockets or personal gains. It’s definitely one of those issues where we can make a difference. The power is in our hands.” Continue reading
