Election Day is finally here! To celebrate, we’ve found some freebies and deals you can enjoy on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Can’t find a freebie in your area? It’s not you, it’s them: Some states and cities prohibit rewards for registering to vote or doing the deed.

That’s why you’ll see offers that give something free to people who show up wearing their “I voted” sticker. It’s not the act that makes them eligible for the freebie — it’s the sticker. Get it? Slick.

Where to Get Your Election Day Freebies and Deals

1. California Tortilla

If you live near a California Tortilla, you can enjoy free chips and queso with any purchase. All you have to do is say, “I voted.”

2. Corner Bakery Cafe

Flash your “I voted” sticker at the Corner Bakery Cafe and receive a free coffee or cold-brew coffee with any purchase.

3. Potbelly Sandwich Shop

Potbelly doesn’t believe in using food to get people to vote, but if you stop by on Election Day you can get a free cookie with the purchase of any entree. All you have to do is ask.

4. Shake Shack

Shake off the voting stress and head over to Shake Shack for free crinkle-cut fries with any purchase. Just flash your “I voted” sticker or place your order in the Shack app and use the code “ivoted.”

5. Taco John’s

This year, Election Day happens to fall on a very important day: National Nachos Day! After you hit the polls, head on over to Taco John’s to celebrate with free nachos — just be sure to download the Taco John’s Rewards app before Nov. 6.
