I Voted: Election Day Freebies 2010


I tried to collect as many as I could... figured this was a good start, but please note that participation may vary for chains/franchises.  So be sure to check before heading out with zero cash in your pocket.  Also if you know of any other Election Day perks, let me know in the comments!

Chick-fil-A
“Several hundred” of 1,400 Chick-fil-A restaurants are handing out chicken sandwiches (the kind normally $2.70) to adults with proof of voting.  And yes, there is one in LA.  But I'd call to make sure they're participating.

Of course, giving out rewards for voting--or not voting--is technically against the law. Let the counter person or server know that California Elections Code section 18521 (b) is on your side, because it prevents any form of bribery for voting through free food, alcohol, or money.
