Voting Help from Arrowhead
While voting is an important civilian duty, sometimes those who want to- can’t make it to the polls.
Arrowhead Transit is making that part of the process simple tomorrow for voters- they’re offering free rides to the polls.
Anyone within the Pine City dial-a-ride boundaries can simply call and choose option 6 for a free ride to the polls.
Just let the driver know where you need to be picked up and your place of polling.
