ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Tomorrow, the Buses to Ballots initiative, along with the University of Michigan's Turn Up Turnout, will have free shuttle services for anyone needing to go the polls. 

Picking up at North Ingalls Mall and outside of the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, community shuttles will take students and residents to 16 polling locations to vote starting from 6 a.m. until 11 p.m. 

The shuttles will have four routes: red, yellow, blue and purple.

The Buses to Ballot initiative was created in response to low student voter turnout in previous elections. The goal of the initiative, supported by Turn Up Turnout, is to get students to the polls, some of which may be difficult to access for those without cars. Turn Up Turnout will also be having "parties at the polls" with free food. 

While you should not need ID to use a shuttle, you will need an ID to vote. For more information, or to volunteer, visit the Buses to Ballots Facebook page.
