Here’s the free stuff you can get on election day for showing proof that you voted

If you needed another reason to vote Tuesday, think free doughnuts, coffee and even booze.

Not only will voters get to select the next president of the United States, but some businesses will give freebies for casting a ballot and showing off that “I voted” sticker.

Here’s what that “I voted” sticker can get you:

A doughnut

Krispy Kreme is giving away a free doughnut on election day. No sticker is needed, just mention the offer at a participating shop. In California, retailers at these locations aren’t participating: Brentwood, Chico, Concord, Pinole, Riverbank, Roseville, Sacramento, Stockton, Vacaville, West Sacramento and Yuba City.


A cup of joe

Voting can get you a free cup of coffee at 7-Eleven at participating shops and with their mobile app. The Pie Hole Los Angeles is handing out a free coffee to anyone who brings a voting stub to any of their shops.

A shot of booze. Yes, really

This campaign season has been tough and occasionally brutal. If it’s left you needing a drink, the 1933 group is offering a complimentary shot of booze from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. when you show off your “I voted” sticker at any of their bars. Their bars include Harlowe, Sassafras, Thirsty Crow, Bigfoot East and West, La Cuevita, Oldfield’s, Idle Hour and Highland Park Bowl.

Limited-edition ‘I voted’ pin

To commemorate Election Day this week, Foot Locker will be giving out free limited-edition “I voted” pins to anyone who presents their voting day stickers at their stores.


Cupcakes and cookies

Milk Jar Cookies is giving out red, white and blue cookies to voters. Joan’s on Third is handing out cupcakes to anyone who shows them their “I voted” sticker.

Pump iron

Gold’s Gym is letting anyone wearing an “I voted” sticker work out for free at any of their participating facilities.


But perhaps the nicest freebie you can get after voting is the jolt of pride from doing your civic duty.
