The hashtag #VoterMotor is aiming to help people carpool to the polls.

Twitter users are using the hashtag to oask other voters for lifts to the polling station or to offer their own cars to other stranded voters.

The hashtag is being used by the Union of Students in Ireland to offer free return train tickets to students who tweet where they have to go to vote using the hashtag.
