Just for performing your patriotic duty as an American citizen and exercising your right to vote, you can score some free food at some of the most popular restaurant chains nationwide. You can also get a discounted ride to your local voting place if you cannot get there without one as well.

All you have to do to score the freebies and discounted items is by proudly showing your “I Voted” sticker to snag the good stuff.

Some of the restaurants do require you to purchase a main meal or drink but if you’re going to eat there anyway, hey, why not get something for nothing as well!

Here are some of the deals you can score, courtesy of the folks at Thrillist and USA Today, that includes not only free food but other deals you can get just for today if you voted.

Shake Shack

The popular shake, fries, and burger joint will give you free fries with any order on Election Day. Just show them your “I Voted” sticker in-store or use the code “ivoted” on the Shack App to get a deal.


When you make a purchase at the popular eatery wearing your “I voted” sticker on your shirt, you’ll get a free cookie.

Taco John’s

If you are a fan of Taco John’s and have their reward app, you’ll find an offer for a free order of chips and nacho cheese ready for you because isn’t it lucky that Election Day is also National Nacho Day?
