IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Buses in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids will offer free rides to people headed to the polls on Election Day.

The cities issued releases saying leaders decided to offer the free rides on Nov. 6 to give as many voters access to the polls as possible.

Rides will be free on the Iowa City and Cedar Rapids Transits all day, with no proof of voter registration or destination required.

Polls are open in the state from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Buses in Cedar Rapids stop running at 6:15 p.m., and at least one precinct - at the Terry Trueblood Recreation Area - in Iowa City is not on the city’s bus route.

Residents are encouraged to find their polling place online before Election Day.
