Just the freedom to vote is incentive enough for me (I already voted early on Friday), but a little added bonus for taking advantage of it is a nice perk. Companies across the country are offering treats to customers that vote on Election Day.
These stores are offering incentives to voters on Tuesday, November 4th:
- Starbucks – Get a free tall 12-oz. cup of brewed coffee. Limit one per customer. If you live in an area that does not provide proof of voting, stores will operate on the honor system.
- Krispy Kreme – Get a free star-shaped donut with red, white, and blue sprinkles when you show them your “I voted” sticker. Participating stores only, so you may want to call ahead.
- Ben & Jerry’s – Get a free scoop of ice cream from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Limit one per customer.
Whether or not you choose to partake in the goodies listed above, I hope all of my readers exercise their right to vote!
