Yellow Cab Co. and its sister fleets - United Checker Cab, South Bay Yellow Cab, Long Beach Yellow Cab, Fiesta Taxi & 1800-TaxiCab - will offer free rides to polling places Tuesday.

Voters interested in catching a ride as part of the companies' "Roll to the Polls" campaign can call 800-808-7293. Callers must state their polling locations and provide the call taker with the code "LA Vote" when booking a cab.

"We understand the importance of participating in the election process and are going the extra mile to make it a little easier for people to vote," said William Rouse, general manager of the fleets, in a statement.

The service is available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
