STARK COUNTY, Ohio — ABCD Transportation Services is providing free rides for voters to the Stark County Board of Elections.

Starting on Monday, voters can either call The ABCD Inc. to arrange a trip to and from the board of elections to vote in person or return an absentee ballot.

“We are excited to provide the opportunity to our community members who may face challenges getting out to vote this year,” said Will Dent, ABCD’s CEO. ”Voter Van rides will bring one or more riders safely to the Board of Elections and back home to allow them to perform their civic duty.”

The voter van is available to individuals and small groups. Anyone riding in the van is required to wear a face mask.

Anyone wanting to ride in the van is encouraged to call early as longer wait times are expected closer to Election Day.

To get a spot on the van, you can call ABCD at 330-455-2699.
