Everyone is doing their part to get out the vote for the 2020 presidential election, including some of your favorite restaurants and fast-food chains. A number of chains will give you great deals or even freebies if you can prove you voted on Tuesday, Nov. 3. Even those who voted early or cast an absentee ballot may be eligible.
This year's historic election has changed the game on every level, including the promotional deals that retailers and restaurants use to get voters in the door. With waits of up to 12 hours expected at some polling locations, delivery is looking more appealing than ever, and some suppliers are bringing food and products right to the voting booth. Others are encouraging voters to stop by after they cast their ballot, offering a delicious incentive to wash down the taste of civic duty.
Some deals are regional or tricky to claim, but there is likely something on the list for you. Here is a look at some of the Election Day deals coming up next Tuesday.
Grubhub has several deals ready to go for election day, including some in partnership with restaurant chains. Red Lobster is offering free delivery through Grubhub on Nov. 3 on any order over $25, while 7-11 and BurgerFi are doing the same for orders over $15. From Burger King, you can get $3 off of any order over $18, and California Pizza Kitchen is offering $10 off of orders over $30. Grubhub has the full list of participating restaurants on its website, including specific deals from PF Chang's, Hooters, Wow Bao and more.prevnext
Seamless is offering a special deal not for voters, but for the poll workers risking their health to keep our election running smoothly this year. The food delivery service is teaming up with Chobani to offer a free meal worth up to $40 to poll workers in New York City. This credit can be used any time between Wednesday, Oct. 28 and Wednesday, Nov. 11. Visit perksforpollworkers.com for the full details on eligibility.prevnext
Boston Market is targeting the late-night voters and poll workers on Tuesday, in recognition of the fact that many will be waiting in line for hours. The chain is offering one free slider to each visitor from 9 p.m. until close at all locations nationwide. There is no purchase necessary, and the promotion applies to Chicken Cheddar, Turkey Cheddar, Chicken Chipotle and BBQ Meatloaf sliders.prevnext
