JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - In case you haven't noticed, there are pretty big midterm elections on Nov. 6 and no matter what side of the political spectrum you fall on, it's important that you do everything you can to make sure you're able to vote on Election Day. 

That's why companies are stepping up and offering free and discounted rides to the polls, and other freebies. 

Here are the free or discounts on Election Day: 

Lyft: Lyft is providing 50 percent off or up to $5 off rides across the country and free rides to underserved communities "that face significant obstacles to transportation."

YMCA: The YMCA will host free child care services on Election Day to make it easier for busy parents and caregivers to get to the polls and vote on Nov. 6.
