Incentive To Vote


Just in case you are somehow unaware, today is election day. Finally! Good golly I thought it might never get here! But it's really really here kiddos! My state is one of the few that does not have early voting. And on top of that, my polling center still uses polling boxes that were created PRE WWII! I should take a picture of the booth. The first time I voted I had to have the man help me because I had no earthly idea how to work the "machine." By "machine" I should note that it requires physical labor to vote. It's wild! I'm once again off topic though. Starbucks sent me this email on Monday to let me know that they are offering everyone a free cup of coffee on election day. You just have to say that you voted. That's it. So on the off off chance that you are feeling unmotivated to stand in line at your polling station today, think of this as incentive. Go vote and then go celebrate with a free cup of joe from Starbucks!

Happy Election Day girls! I know win or lose, we are all just happy that today is finally here. And the incessant adds will cease from running on TV and radio. That alone is reason to celebrate!


***Update...

Ben and Jerry's is giving away a free scoop today- I believe from 5-7PM but double check online. AND Krispy Kreme is giving away free star shaped donuts today. We don't have a Krispy K up here- thank goodness! I would totally need to be crane-lifted out of the house if I lived anywhere near that gooey goodness.

I'm voting, to spite the fact that we don't have a Starbucks within a 100 mile radius!!

Well I will take you to ours next time you visit (Krispy Kreme)... it's right down the street and the light flashes we're they're fresh. Never ever been and we've lived here over 3 yrs!

Also - Chick-fil-A is giving away free chicken sandwiches. And Shane's rib shack also has some kind of free meal too...

When I went to Starbucks, I had to show my "I Voted" sticker...OK, except for the fact that I voted last week and so did half of North Carolina! So I had to pay! It doesn't mention that anywhere in this ad...I am not happy!
