An “I Voted” sticker is the least of the goodies you can rope in today. But you might need it to score some of the food freebies on the list Forbes has rounded up. On the other hand, a free taxi ride might get you to the polls!
Here are just a few offers from the list…
- White Castle, America’s first fast-food hamburger chain, is offering a FREE small Sweet Potato Waffle Fry with a purchase at any White Castle location to anyone who shows his or her “I Voted” sticker. From November 1-6, cravers can vote for their favorite French Fry – Sweet Potato or Crinkle Cut – by logging onto White Castle’s Facebook page. All participants will receive a coupon for a FREE small Sweet Potato Waffle Fry or small Crinkle Cut French Fry with a purchase. Redeemable at any White Castle location on Election Day only.
- In an effort to get Boston voters conveniently to the polls this coming Election Day, Hailo, the new cab hailing taxi app is offering $20.12 off taxi fares per customer on November 6. Essentially the promo will result in FREE rides for those whose fare total is less than $20.12. All you have to do is download the app and register a credit card, enter VOTEHAILO as a promo code and the discount is applied instantly.

- You can rock the vote with Rogue Valley, a band out of Minneapolis, that is offering a free album to anyone who sends a photo of themselves with an “I Voted” sticker to firstname.lastname@example.org. More details can be found here.
- Red Hot & Blue Barbecue (25 restaurants located in Texas, North Carolina, and the D.C. Area) is offering a $5.00 meal if you wear your “I voted” sticker. Find your nearest location here.
