ALBANY, GA (WALB) - If you don't have a ride to the polls on Tuesday, you are in luck.

One funeral home is offering free door-to-door transportation.

It is something the Poteat Funeral home has done before.

More than twenty people took advantage of the offer during the primary.

The funeral home director Jeffery Wakefield said public transportation isn't available to everyone.

He hopes even more people call for rides this election.

"People deserve to have a right to go vote. They need to be able to have a way to the polls and sometimes public transportation does not get them exactly where they need to go," said Wakefield.

If you want a ride you can call the funeral home directly at (229) 436-3615.
