Yellow Cab will give voters ages 60 and over free rides to the polls November 8th in Newport News and Hampton. The offer is open to senior citizens who don't have their own transportation to the polls. Cab drivers will wait while voters cast their ballot and riders will be asked to sign a voucher, but not pay.
Those interested should call the Peninsula Agency on Aging at (757) 873-0541 by noon November 7th. The agency will ask for a telephone number, pickup address, voting location and requested pickup time. Depending on demand, pickup times may be shuffled, and riders may need to share a cab.
