Aldersgate United Methodist Church is offering free transportation to the polls for early absentee voting Friday, Oct. 28,  and Tuesday, Nov. 1, from 1 to 4 p.m. each day.

Rides are offered without regard for party affiliation. No advice or voting recommendations will be provided. The church believes strongly that no one should be prevented from voting because of lack of transportation.

Those who would like a ride should phone the church at 596-5715 on Oct. 28 orNov. 1 when they are ready for a ride. Areas included are Rockland, Rockport, Camden, Hope and Owls Head.
