Drive the vote text with American flag


At Zipcar, our mission is to enable simple and responsible urban living – a mission that aligns with the responsibility we have as citizens to vote. With #DRIVEtheVOTE, we encourage our community of civic-minded Zipsters to not only zip to the polls themselves, but to encourage others to vote as well. Together, we can make a real difference.

From one Zipster to another

Here’s how #DRIVEtheVOTE is driving a difference.

In 2016, I was passionate and penniless after grad school. Voting, especially as a woman, was of fundamental importance and meaning to me. I will be forever grateful to Zipcar for making transportation more accessible during the 2016 election, otherwise I would not have been able to vote. Thank you, Zipcar, for letting me #DRIVEtheVOTE!

Because of Zipcar, my high school kiddos were able to be part of the voting experience even before they were old enough to vote. My son wanted to be a part of the experience since he knew he’d be old enough to vote next time around and my daughter, who is very passionate about certain causes, also wanted to be a part of the experience and MAKE SURE I voted! So, I picked up a Zipcar with my kiddos, zipped over to the neighborhood poles, and contributed to my right as an American woman/2-year-divorced single-income mom.
