GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Tuesday, Americans finally head to the polls and, judging from the long absentee voting lines, a record turnout is expected.
Patience will be a virtue Tuesday, but Greenville County Elections Director, Conway Belangia, says there are better times than others to avoid the longest wait.
“Mid morning, about 9 or 10 o’clock, we will have a lull,” said Belangia. “Not much of a lull. There will still be some lines, but not long lines.”
Your next bet for a shorter line is from 2pm to 4pm.
Belangia said avoid going before work, on your lunch break and after work.
“Polls close at 7. Anybody in line at 7pm will be allowed to cast a ballot,” said Belangia.
With all eyes on whom the next president will be this Election Day, Uber is teaming up with Google on a feature that will tell users their polling place. It’s also giving new users a 20 dollar discount tomorrow.
Other community groups are offering a free ride to the polls.
“Black Lives Matter will be giving rides to the polls tomorrow because we know that voting is very important,” said Upstate founder, Derrick Quarles.
Quarles said he spent last Election Day giving rides to total strangers. To get a ride, all you need to do is contact them through Facebook.
“I think it’s important that we not only encourage people to vote, but that we encourage them by saying “we’ll take you if you don’t have a ride,” said Quarles.
