Pasco County, Florida -- The Pasco County Public Transportation (PCPT) Department and the Supervisor of Elections will provide Pasco County voters free rides to the polls on election days in the upcoming 2014 election cycle.
On Primary Election Day, Tuesday, August 26, 2014 and General Election Day, November 4, 2014, voters who present their voter information card will ride free to their local polling location on public transportation.
Michael H. Carroll, Pasco County Public Transportation Director, PCPT, proposed the partnership to the BOCC at their bi-monthly meeting at the West Pasco Government Center today as an effort to encourage and promote participation in the election process while introducing public transportation as a viable option for travel throughout Pasco County.
"I couldn't be happier with the approval of this proposal or more grateful for the Board's support," said Supervisor Corley. "I think providing an opportunity for citizens to exercise their right to vote is a worthy cause and serves as an exemplary example of good government."
