You really want to talk about taking your “souls to the polls”? Clora Funeral Home in Detroit is offering free limo rides. We asked… there will be no hearse rides on Election Day. Major Clora Jr. is the owner of the funeral home and counts this as an important service to the community.  Detroiters can sign up through Monday evening for a ride to any poll in Southeastern Michigan. This is the first time Clora has offered this service and as of this post, 155 people have signed up for a ride. 

We want to make a conscious effort and this election is one of the most important elections of our lifetime. ” -Major Clora Jr. 

Lyft, Uber and Lime are all offering discounted rides on Election Day. ​
