Oxford University Transit to offer free rides to voting precincts
Much like they did during the primary elections, Oxford University Transit is once again offering free rides to voting precincts on Election Day next week.
The OUT buses will be giving free rides to four of the five polling stations within the Oxford city limits. There is not a bus route that can take voters to the District 4 Lafayette Civic Center precinct off of Highway 6.
Those who vote at the Lafayette County Extension office in Oxford District 1 can take the Blue East line. The Gray line will take voters to the Oxford Conference Center precinct in Oxford District 2 and the Red North line will go to the Stone Recreation Center precinct in Oxford District 3. The Red South line will take people to the Lafayette County Health Department precinct in Oxford District 5.
Voting for the general election will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Nov. 5.
