Election day is finally here! To celebrate, we’ve found some freebies and offers for you to enjoy on Tuesday 3rd November.
Can’t find a giveaway near you? It’s not you. From a technical point of view, the Federal Election Commission prohibits any incentives to vote on election day if a federal candidate is on the ballot.
This is why you are seeing offers that offer something free to people who show up with their “I voted” sticker. It’s not the act that qualifies them for the giveaway – it’s the sticker. Got it? Smooth.
And some companies avoided the problem by offering giveaways to everyone on election day – no vote required (but seriously, go to the vote).
