After a tense campaign and months of political chaos, Election Day is finally upon us. Voter turnout is expected to be huge in Texas today, which means that plenty of folks will be out and about looking for a post-voting snack after standing in line to cast their ballot.
Fortunately, a number of Dallas-area restaurants are offering an extra incentive to vote, in the form of free food or drinks when patrons show an “I voted” sticker or poll receipt. Whether you early vote or go to the polls on Election Day, be sure to make a plan, then reward yourself by hitting up one of the fine local establishments below.
(Note: While it is technically against the law for establishments to offer free food and drinks to voters, restaurants can legally get around that by opening up the offers to everyone, even those without “I Voted” stickers.)
Ascension Coffee — Get a free cup of drip coffee at any location when you present your “I voted” sticker. Through November 3.
Another Round — The newly-opened mini-golf hangout is offering $2 off any cocktail for voters, now through November 7. Reservations required.
Billy Can Can — Voters can score a sweet deal on the Billy Burger, topped with cheddar, bacon, pickled jalapeños, and Texas IPA mustard, plus a draft beer, all for $20.
