I Voted Early Sticker

Multiple restaurants are rewarding those who have voted with freebies and offers on Tuesday, November 6!

Read on for the list of Election Day 2018 offers. It is clear that less companies are offering deals for Election Day than in the past. Technically, it is apparently not legal to offer freebies in exchange for votes if there are federal candidates on the ballots, according to federal law. That could be why so many larger chain restaurants are passing on offering deals this year. If you hear of any other offers, post them in the comments section.

Jack Tar & the Colonel's Daughter

Visit Jack Tar & the Colonel's Daughter in downtown Durham any time between now through November 6 wearing your "I Voted!" sticker and you'll receive a complimentary cup of Counter Culture Coffee. The restaurant is located at 202 Corcoran St, Durham, on the ground floor of the newly renovated Unscripted hotel.

Potbelly Sandwich Shop

On Tuesday, 11/6 and Wednesday, 11/7, Potbelly Sandwich Shop is giving customers a free cookie with any purchase when you show your “I Voted” sticker or just ask for the cookie. No sticker is required to get the deal. See the details on Twitter.
