I procrastinated during early voting, and now I’m looking forward to a morning of standing in line waiting…and waiting…and waiting…tomorrow to vote.
But, my day is suddenly looking up! The lovely “I Voted” sticker will gain me (and millions of others) access to some pretty sweet freebies tomorrow. Thanks to the Guru of New, Heyitsfree.net, Slickdeals, Delighted and others for these great finds!
Chick-fil-A: Get a free chicken sandwich for all voters. In some locations, Chick-fil-A is also letting campaigners bring in their election yard signs on Wednesday, November 5, for a free chicken sandwich.
Krispy Kreme: Get a free star-shaped donut with red, white and blue sprinkles
Ben & Jerry’s: Get a free scoop of ice cream, between 5 and 8pm
Shane’s Rib Shack: Get an entire free “Vote America Meal” of three chicken tenders, fries, and a 20oz. drink
Starbucks: Get a free cup of brewed coffee (none of the fancy stuff)
California Tortilla: Get a free taco (DE, MD, DC, PA, VA, WV)
Rock the Vote: Download these songs for free:
- Maroon 5 – Not Falling Apart
- Sara Bareilles – Many the Miles
- Phantom Planet – Dropped
- Raining Jane – Incline
- Menomena – Wet and Rusing
- Michael Franti and Spearhead – Hey World (Don’t Give Up Version)
- Ry Cuming – Home
- The Duke Sprit – This Ship Was Built To Last
And, only in Dallas – New Look is offering free tattoo removal.
Cupcakery (Frisco, TX) – Get a free McCain or Obama cupcake
Most of these offers are only valid with an “I Voted” sticker. I don’t know what to tell those of you that voted early.
Unfortunately, for all of you in California, the California Elections Code bans such freebies to reward voters. The election code was originally established long ago to stop the bribing of voters with food and liquor at the polling place. It’s unknown whether anyone has ever been prosecuted for violating the ban, however this could effect the status of these freebies tomorrow.
Have fun voting!
