Reasons to Savor Election Day

Tomorrow, Starbucks will offer a free cup of coffee to anyone who asks. Krispy Kreme will offer star-shaped doughnuts. And Ben & Jerrys is giving away free scoops.

These are just the more notable companies offering sales and other promotions on Election Day.

But the three companies are offering the promotion to anyone, so as to not violate election laws with prohibit rewarding voters for completing their civic duty. So Starbucks is offering tall coffees, as a way to celebrate “with our customers over a great cup of coffee,” a company spokeswoman told the AP. They originally wanted to offer the free cups to those who proved they had voted.

The promotions are non-partisan, although Ben & Jerry’s has given away “Cherries for Change” ice cream during the primaries.
