Voting: No Sweat at Hexter Elementary, Starbucks and Krispy Kreme

Arrived at Hexter Elementary in Old Lake Highlands at 8:10 a.m. to find about seven people stacked up at the “Names beginning with the letters A through L” table. I’m not sure if the M’s through Z’s are apathetic, but it sure made for an easy vote. About a half hour later, I waited about three minutes in line at the Starbucks at Caruth Haven and Greenville, where I ordered my free “voting” coffee. A few minutes later, there was no wait at all at the Krispy Kreme at Greenville and Lovers Lane, where I received my free “voting” doughnut (I chose the custard-filled chocolate iced variety). Does anyone know where I can get a free “voting” lunch? Maybe I could milk this for an entire day of free stuff.

VOTING SWAG UPDATE: The Cupcakery is rewarding North Texans who vote in the November 4 presidential election with a free patriotic cupcake for anyone who brings in their “I VOTED” sticker. Visit The Cupcakery at The Shops of Starwood in Frisco located at Lebanon and the Dallas North Tollway between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. on November 4 while quantities last.

    No “I voted” stickers in Lakewood.

    I guess that means no free donut for me. 🙁

  2. Dave Moore says:

    Actually, Sky, I believe if you tell them you voted, that should be sufficient. These companies have to offer free products to everyone to comply with election laws. (

    I think you get something at ChikFila with your sticker!!!

  4. Sky Masterson says:

    Thanks, Dave. Looks like the donut run is back on!

    Checking on that Chick-fil-A rumor…

  6. Dave Moore says:

    Eat The World is giving out free scoops of ice cream to those who voted. They’re at 9850 Walnut Hill Lane, near Jupiter Road, in north east Dallas.

  7. Dave Moore says:

    Flaks at Chick-fil-A weren’t helpful, but someone answering a phone at a Dallas location said it was a rumor that started in Ohio. And no, they’re not giving away chicken to voters. So much for a Chick-fil-A in every pot.
