LIBERTY CAB OFFERS FREE RIDE TO POLLS

Need a ride to your polling place on Election Day?

If your child is a participant in the Kids Voting New York program and you are without wheels, Liberty Cab will take you and your young voter there -- and back -- free.

"We're hoping to generate more interest for voters who have trouble getting out," said Liberty Cab Co. President William Yuhnke.

"We're thinking of people with disabilities, and single parents. We're hoping to increase the voter turnout," he added.

All a voter needs to do is call Liberty Cab on Election Day and identify himself or herself as a parent or guardian of a Kids Voting participant -- and Liberty Cab will do the rest, Yuhnke said.

"To my knowledge, this is the first time this has been done anywhere in the country," he added.

"I'm a director of the International Taxi and Livery Association -- and I've never heard of it being done anywhere else."
