It's finally here: Tuesday is Election Day across the nation.

And while most people are getting out to their local polling places, some travel influencers and frequent flyers were working a little harder to cast their ballots for the 2018 Midterm Elections.

Frequent travelers can also consider voting by absentee ballot. Barring any mail debacles, that process should be easy to complete before you travel. If you do need to request an absentee ballot to be sent to a long-term trip destination, keep in mind a remote locale could present logistical obstacles.


If you haven't voted yet, don't forget about the discounts and promotions rideshare companies are offering to transport voters to the polls on Tuesday.
