All across the United States, Americans are getting ready to vote. In fact, if you live in one of the 34 states that allows early voting, you may have exercised your democratic right already. However, if you haven’t made it to the polls yet, you’ve got one more chance because Nov. 6 is Election Day.
While you shouldn’t need any additional incentive to exercise your civic duty, we’re certainly never going to be upset at free food, and some eateries are offering just that.
After you vote, be sure to make your way to one of these establishments for a post-voting pick-me-up.
According to Thrillist, Shake Shack is offering a free order of fries to everyone who votes. Simply present an “I Voted” sticker or redeem with the code “ivoted” in the chain’s Shack App.
Note: This offer is only valid with the purchase of an additional food or beverage product.
Potbelly Sandwich Shop
Potbelly Sandwich Shops are giving guests free cookies on Tuesday and Wednesday with any purchase. All customers need to do is show their “I Voted” sticker.
Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop
Get $1 off any sub Tuesday with your “I Voted” sticker.
Unlike most of the other deals, California Tortilla customers do not need to present anything to obtain their free menu item. Simply say, “I voted,” and get free chips and queso with any purchase.
#Vote for queso! We’re thanking our guests with free chips and queso with any purchase for doing their civic duty. Say “I VOTED” or show your “I VOTED!” sticker when ordering on Nov 6th.
