Election Day means FREE RIDE DAY at STARS. It is our commitment to offer free rides every election day to allow our neighbors access to the polls. We will provide free rides on fixed routes for all riders. ADA rides will be free for all Gold Card holders as well. All Rides are free, whether it’s to the polls, work, or the store. But we hope our riders will vote.
There are three ways that voters in Saginaw County can get rides to the polls for free:
• On election day, all STARS fixed route services will be free. Please use this service and vote. On this day only, STARS Fixed Routes will run until 9PM so that all voters have a ride home after the polls close.
• Second, voters aged 60 and over and gold card holders can ride STARS LIFT for free to vote. Vote early at the Saginaw City Clerk’s Office from Tuesday, November 1st to Monday, November 7th. Or vote in person on election day on Tuesday, November 8th. To schedule your free LIFT ride to vote, call STARS LIFT at (989)753-9526 Monday-Friday between 9AM and 3PM. Rides must be scheduled at least one business day in advance.
• Third, voters unable to use bus routes or STARS LIFT can use STARS Rides to Wellness for free round trips to their polling location on Election Day. This offer is available only for voters who cannot access their polling location by STARS bus routes or STARS LIFT. These rides can be scheduled at least one business day in advance by calling (844) 532-7433.
Request and complete an absentee ballot at your clerk’s office through Monday, November 7th.
Polls are open on Tuesday, November 8th from 7AM-8PM.
To find your polling location or to see a sample ballot, visit the Secretary of State website at https://mvic.sos.state.mi.us/. To register to vote, vote absentee or confirm your polling location, call or visit your local city or township clerk.
