Vote Today, and Get Free Stuff!

Courtesy of Lifehacker, here's a list of free things being offered to people who vote:


  • Ben & Jerry's: Free scoop of ice cream between 5-8pm. Originally, materials stated you'd need some form of proof you voted (like an "I voted" sticker), but current materials just spell out "Free scoops!" (locate)
  • Books-A-Million: Free cup of coffee after showing your "I voted" sticker. (locate
  • California Tortilla: Free taco for showing "I voted" sticker. (locate)
  • Chick-fil-A: "Several hundred" of 1,400 Chick-fil-A restaurants are handing out chicken sandwiches (the kind normally $2.70) to adults with proof of voting. (locate)
  • Krispy Kreme: Free star-shaped doughnut with "patriotic sprinkles" (i.e. red, white, and blue) for "all retail customers with an 'I Voted' sticker." USA Today reports that 85 of 231 Krispy Kreme locations will participate. (locate)
  • Shane's Rib Shack: A free "Celebrate America Meal"—3-piece chicken tenders, fries, and 20-ounce drink—to the first 300 customers at participating locations, according to their press release. (locate)
  • Starbucks: Free tall coffee at "any Starbucks." "Tell us you voted" seems to be the bargaining chip, according to their recent TV ads. (locate)
  • Vote & Vax: National project by non-profits to offer free flu vaccinations on election day. (locate)


Hopefully you didn't need these additional reasons to get out there and do it! Happy voting, everyone!

What really sucks is 1) I've never recieved an "I voted" sticker in my new precinct (I assume they leave that for all the rich neighborhoods) and 2) you don't get one for voting early.

I think it's certain companies' out.

All I care about is the ice cream though :)

Krispy Kreme and Starbucks are side by side and I got a free doughnut (American flay colors) and free coffee, voted. I plan on going to Chick-fil-A for lunch (I was planning on doing that anyways). Tuesday/Thursday are work out nights, and go figure, right across the street from our gym is a ben and jerry's. Guess my boy and I will be getting some ice cream :)

I work at a Hastings Entertainment store and I am giving out free "Vote" stickers and coloring pages to kids and free sodas to anyone with an "I voted" sticker! I love Election Day!

Don't have the link to this but I think they're not requiring you to actually prove you voted since there are laws agains bribing someone to vote. So even if you haven't voted nor will you can still get the stuff.

Just ask and you'll get it, no need to prove you voted.

Hi Mme X,

It is now time to scrutinize Obama’s stand on the bailout, the mortgage mess as well as his tax policies...all the issues that have won him this presidency.
