Free Stuff on Election Day

You know, if there are two things I love, it's delicious, free snackies and ...uh...performing my civic duty.

But, clearly, my civic duty doesn't stop at voting. I'd be remiss to WBB's 5-6 readers if I didn't provide a quick roundup of free eats and drinks up for grabs tomorrow. (UPDATED on Nov. 4 to include more food and non-food related freebies and discounts...see below.)

Starbucks. Go in on Nov. 4, tell 'em you voted, and snag a free tall coffee.

Ben & Jerrys. Stop by between 5 and 8 p.m. and get a free scoop of ice cream. This nifty link can give you the nearest participating scoop shop.

Krispy Kreme. Free donuts. Patriotic donuts. That would probably taste delicious if they actually have a location near you.


Chick-Fil-A. Bring your "I voted" sticker to one of hundreds of Chick-Fil-A restaurants participating in this promotion to snag a free chicken sandwich. Mmm. (Not all locations are participating, so you might want to call your local one first to check it out.)

Shane's Rib Shack. The chain (mostly located in the Southeast) is offering free "Vote America" meals to voters, which include chicken tenders, fries and a 20 oz. soda. (Thanks to WBB reader Kelly for the tip!)

Wilco download. No sticker required. Just pledge to vote and download "I Shall Be Released," written by Bob Dylan and featuring Fleet Foxes. (Thanks, Greg!)

Hey, Cincinnati readers, a local discount!
It's not free, but it's good enough. Shake It Records in Northside is offering 10 percent off if you sport your voting sticker. (Thanks to Stef in the comments for giving us the heads up!)

Know of any more? Let us know in the comments!

This is awesome, Loree! I shall eat my way around town tomorrow evening.

Another one is Hilda's hair salon offering free haircuts. Oh, wait, that was on Ugly Betty.
Maybe Ben & Jerry's has done this before, but it seems like this is the big new thing this year.
Anyway, do you remember all of these freebies in 04? Also, I saw the Starbucks TV ad for this thing - they seem VERY proud of themselves for giving away coffee.

Awesome. I saw the deal about Ben and Jerry's on Facebook last week, unfortunately, there's not one near here. But there are Starbucks here and there's a Krispy Kreme in Bentonville.

this isn't a "freebie" per se, but if you're into music (independent stuff, especially), shake it records in northside is offering a 10% discount on all purchases on election day with an "i voted" sticker.

(i only wish i could take advantage of all of this cool stuff you're all getting!)

The coolest election freebie I've gotten so far is Wilco's version of Bob Dylan/The Band's "I Shall Be Released." All you have to do is pledge to vote.
