Here’s What It Is:
The Carpool2Vote App is available for free download in the App Store as a public benefit to support voter turnout and help riders with a lift to the polls to cast their ballot in the general election on Tuesday, November 8, 2016 (and beyond).
Step 1: For DRIVERS who are heading to the polls — Simply utilize the apps capability to create a “Trip Profile” and “List” your trip with polling location, vehicle type, seats available, and time.
Step 2: For RIDERS — It’s easy and simple to navigate! Simply “Request a Carpool” by clicking on a vehicle within the map. You will select the number of seats you will need, and any special accommodations such as wheel chair access, etc.

Step 3: For DRIVERS and RIDERS — Our Carpool2Vote App also ensures the rider is getting in the correct vehicle driven by the correct driver through a very simple authentication solution that’s similar to the way warehouses work. Each driver will be issued a unique barcode based on their license plate and driver’s license.

When the driver’s car arrives, that barcode will be displayed on the driver’s phone, and the rider can quickly take a picture of the driver’s barcode to ensure they are getting into the right vehicle. If the driver is who they should be, the passenger will receive a confirmation sound (beep) and vibration after they “scan.” If the driver is not correct, there will be an alert on the passenger’s phone.
Step 4: Your vote is your voice! Please show you care by volunteering as a driver, spreading the word, and reaching out to your neighbors and friends to help inspire social and civic engagement.

Proudly created with American ingenuity and service

Empowering women to vote and run for elected office #Nonpartisan #WomenVotes #Carpool2Vote

Are you too busy to share your voice about modern politics? The answer of course is a resounding NO when put in the context of women’s suffrage and women votes. Meet Nicole Wild Merl, mom, advocate for women and girls, graduate student and co-founder of #WomenVotes, Nicole says “At first I thought I couldn’t take it on, then I realized what a truly special time this is when women announce their candidacies to run for president of the United States, and found a way to combine my studies with a political purpose.”

Can men participate too? Of course!!! Meet Thomas Cook, an entrepreneur, mentor, philanthropist and Co-founder of #WomenVotes who wanted to show how he cares through his support of the initiative and sponsorship of the first-ever virtual Education Cooperative at Northeastern University to help his mentee (Nicole) achieve her educational and professional goals. And, with this bold idea #WomenVotes was created and dedicated to the importance of the women’s vote and how it will influence American politics now and for future generations.
