— If transportation is keeping you from voting, Durham wants to help.

GoDurham buses will be free from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. on Tuesday to help voters get to the polls. The Durham City Council voted recently to go fare-free on Election Day after a request from the Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People.

Several big races are on the ballots in Durham, including the mayoral race and three council seats.
