2016 ELECTION DAY

Where to Get Free Coffee, Food, Booze on Election Day

It's your civic duty not just to vote — but to eat, drink, and be merry on Election Day. And America is here for you: Coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and other businesses across the country are slashing their prices on Election Day for those who flash their patriotic "I Voted" sticker.

Nationwide

Krispy Kreme will be doling out free donuts and 7-Eleven will be giving free iced coffees.

For Americans who prefer comfort food, Burger Fi is offering voters $5 "Conflicted Burgers" to represent the anyone still left in the middle on Election Day.

But, if you want to have a little more fun with your vote, stop at California Tortilla and either say, "I'm with Queso", "Make Queso Great Again" or "I Vote For Queso" to enjoy free chips and queso.

Chicken lovers should run to Nando's Peri-Peri with their stickers and pick a side dish of their choice to get it free.

And voters can also reserve a complimentary Zipcar to ride between these restaurants.

Washington, D.C.

The nation's capital is set to become a major cocktail hub as voters sit back to watch the counts trickling in from different states.

Capitol Hill restaurant Art and Soul will get the ball rolling with $10 'Swing State' cocktails representing their contested countrymen. The George Washington (representing Virginia) features Catoctin Creek Rye, Fernet Angelico, sugar, bitters and ginger; and the It's Legal cocktail (representing Nevada) is a mix of Suerte Anejo, Cointreau Noir, fresh lime, guava & sugar.

If the swing state theme doesn't take your fancy, head over to ENO Wine Bar for free bruschetta with your voting sticker and, if you mention the password POTUS, you can get 30 percent off any bottle of American wine.

For those with a sweet tooth, Michelin-starred Blue Duck Tavern is offering special limited edition ice cream flavors to top its famous apple pie for two: Pick from Republican flavor (cranberry), Democratic (blueberry lemon). or Undecided (vanilla).

New York City

The Big Apple's busy food and drinks scene will see New Yorkers counting votes to cupcakes, martinis, and pinatas.

Harding's is offering free political-themed snacks from 9-10 p.m. and $5 beer to voters who wear their 'I Voted' stickers. Mexican restaurant Campeon will be doling out $3 brews, and free "We're Screwed" t-shirts to the first 200 customers.

For those who crave a bit more Election Night fun, the Village Pourhouse will have Trump and Clinton pinatas that voters can beat to unlock political prizes. Professor Thom's sports bar will spin its signature prize wheel as each state's votes get tallied.

Popcorn lovers should head to brewpub Paulaner for free red and blue popcorn, and carnivores can make a pitstop at The Meatball Shop to get free mini buffalo chicken meatballs.

If you are a cupcake fan, don't forget to visit Magnolia Bakery for a $5.25 Hillary, Trump, or I Voted cupcake.

The Slovenian owner of Sojourn Restaurant in Manhattan, who heads up a group called "Let's Move Melania into the White House," is offering drinks on the house Tuesday night if Donald Trump wins.

Chicago

In Chicago, Lyfe Kitchen is giving out free coffee for voters with 'I Voted' wristbands.

Kids will also have the chance to cast a ballot at sweetFrog Frozen Yogurt, where they can taste yogurts of different colors and decide which flavor they want to vote for.

Japanese restaurant Kizuki will continue the food fiesta by handing out free Chicken Karaage entrees to the first 50 people with voting wristbands.

Belly Up Smokehouse is offering $5 fireball shots every time Donald Trump wins a state — or customers can sip on a $12 Clinton dirty martini.

Los Angeles

Californians can expect to sip wine and chew on delicious fries and tacos as rewards for their votes.

Taco prices are red hot in L.A. on Election Day: $3 at Red O, $2 for fish tacos at Rubio's diners, and $6 at Hyperion.

For wine lovers, Taste on Melrose is offering free sparkling wine with any purchase.

Dim Sum lovers might have to wait past Election Day for free pork dumplings or crab wontons but should rock their vote in P.F. Chang's on Election Day and choose one of these dishes, because the dish that gets the most votes will be free for all Tuesday's customers on November 14.

Philadelphia

Beer, wings and pizza are just some of the things that come free or under $10 as Philly hits the polls.

Marco's Pizza will be handing out free medium topped pizzas to voters who go on Marco's website and vote the restaurant President.

Wing lovers, on the other hand, should rush to East Coast Wings and Grill immediately after voting to be one of the first five customers to receive free Honey BBQ Wings. One will also get a free catered party.

For those skipping food for drinks, head to Brauhaus Schmitz for a free Oktoberfest beer or $1 beers at World of Beer.

America will thank you for your endeavors.
