Krispy Kreme Is Giving Out Free Donuts On Election Day

Voting on Election Day in the middle of a pandemic changes a lot of things, especially because a lot more people are voting by mail. (If you are doing that, today is the last day recommended by the USPS to do so to ensure your ballot is counted by Election Day, by the way.)

One thing that changes is getting “I Voted” stickers for showing up to your polling place, as well as attempts to continue traditions of gatherings after everyone is done voting. Krispy Kreme is attempting to fill both of those gaps with an Election Day deal that includes the iconic stickers.

Anyone, regardless if they’ve voted yet or not, can pop into their local Krispy Kreme and get a free Original Glazed Doughnut on November 3rd. “I Voted” stickers will also be available in stores for those that want to either share that they voted, or encourage others to vote.

For those who are heading to the polls and expecting a long wait, the donuts can also be a nice warm snack to help keep your stomach filled while standing in line.

Regardless of whether you get the free donuts or note, it’s important to go and vote on November 3rd. Every person’s vote matters.


Restaurants Across The Country Are Offering Up Election Day Specials For Voting

Election days used to be a grand spectacle in the United States. Once you cast your ballot, there would be picnics, music, and plenty of time to get together with friends and family as everyone celebrated the day.

Now, we may treat the election process as just rushing into a closed-off booth for a few minutes before heading off to work, but several restaurants and chains are keeping that tradition alive with some enticing food specials.

For those wondering, it is technically illegal to entice people to vote with goods or cash. However, the workaround is pretty easy for restaurants, as it’s fair game to offer up the deal to anyone who asks for it. They’re still keeping that Election Day tradition alive, though, by being a place for anyone to come in, relax, and eat, regardless of whether you voted or not.

Here’s a list of several places across the country offering up these specials on November 6th:

Shake Shack

Shake Shack is giving out free fries with their burgers on Election Day. To redeem, you simply have to show up wearing an “I Voted” sticker or enter the code “ivoted” in the Shake Shack app.

The nationwide taco chain is giving out free orders of chips and nacho cheese when you use their app. It’s mainly because November 6th is also National Nacho Day, but that doesn’t mean voters can’t score on the deal, too.
