Facebook app facilitates carpooling to the polls
Could a potential record number of voters tomorrow also mean massive CO2 emissions as people drive to the polls? Live Earth and carpool site Zimride sure hope not. They’ve partnered to make a Facebook app enabling people to find a ride in their area to their local polling spot. Their Carpool to the Polls application also offers a polling station locator and coordinated carpool for non-voting occasions. So if you can’t walk, take public transportation, or vote absentee, you can simultaneously rock the vote and a stranger’s Volkswagon.
