Voting has many perks: participating in a civic duty, making your voice heard in your community, getting pins and sticker swag so you can take that requisite “See? I voted” selfie. Also among those benefits are the food and drink freebies and discounts that reward you for casting your ballot. Dallas County has shattered early voting records for voter turnout, and while we’re not patting ourselves on the back just yet, you can have a small treat on Election Day. Who knew democracy tasted so good—like chocolate chip cookie good. Here’s where to show off your “I Voted” sticker for some deals.
Located in Legacy West, this Spanish-style tapas restaurant is celebrating Election Day with $5 sangria all day long—a deal considering it usually sets you back nine bucks for that day-long wine buzz. Not to give away any proprietary recipes or anything, but Bulla’s sangria boasts red wine, brandy, triple sec, Sprite, and chopped orange.
If you accidentally washed your voting sticker because you forgot to take it off your sweatshirt, then no matter! At Baldo’s you don’t need proof of voting to get 25 percent off pints of ice cream in flavors like pumpkin spice and honey pomegranate.
Get a free, second bowl of udon (after purchasing a first) when you show your “I Voted” sticker, or some proof of election participation, now through November 3 at the buzzy Carrollton restaurant.
Rodeo Goat Ice House
All Rodeo Goat locations are hosting an election-themed Battle of the Burgers. Choose between the McDonald and the Biden Burger—each purchase counts as a “vote” for the winning burger. Plus, score 10 percent percent off for wearing a voting sticker.
To celebrate Election Day, the pizza chain will offer 10 percent off dine-in orders and free deliveries to anyone wearing an “I Voted” sticker. It happens from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on November 3 and only at the Denton location.
Chili’s Bar and Grill
A Chili’s—whose slogan I feel compelled to point out is, “Together We Chili’s”—near you is hosting a “Vote for the Margarita Party.” Buy a $5 El Presidente margarita and receive a commemorative sticker to add to your collection of patriotic stickers.
Sport your “I Voted” sticker and nab 10 percent off your food purchase.
