Reasons To Vote: Free Stuff W/ Your “I VOTED” Sticker
BYT Staff | Nov 5, 2012 | 12:00PM |

Hey, so…. unless you are foreign (what’s up!) or believe that voting in DC makes no difference, you will be/should be voting tomorrow. And while, apparently, it is hugely illegal to pay people—whether with money or something else—to vote, the beautiful, consumerist world of America has rallied to offer you all sorts of incentives to vote/wear your “I VOTED” sticker.

Here is a brief rundown of those, in case you needed them, you know, in one handy spot:

  • VIA DCist: On Election Day, people arriving at California Tortilla with one of those stickers can get a free taco, while those going to Z-Burger can get a free hamburger.
