LiveEarth and Zimride have teamed up over on Facebook to make it easy for the carless to find a ride to the voting booth. Cleverly called Carpool to the Polls, Facebook users just need to push the big green button at the bottom of the screen that says, um, “Carpool to the Polls.” They’ve really make it simple, folks.
Just under that big green button is a gray button that will help you find your polling station. Next to the green button is another green button for arranging a carpool anywhere else for any old errand that needs to be run.
This election is important for a lot of reasons, but one of the biggies this cycle involves sustainable energy sources and alternative fuels. I’m not going to tell you who to vote for, but it wasn’t the Barack Obama crowds shouting, “Drill, baby, drill.” I’m just saying.
So if you need an extra kick in the pants to get to the polls, sign up for a carpool. It’s greener than driving yourself, and you’re more likely to fulfill your commitment as a voter if you know someone is waiting for you at the curb, honking her horn, to take you to the voting booth.
