Sporting your “I Voted” sticker around town today can potentially earn you a bit more than high-fives from fellow voters—it can get you free stuff.
Because this week’s election is a federal election where people are voting for members of Congress, offering incentives for casting your ballot is technically against the law, The New York Times notes. The reasoning is that offering someone a free sandwich or a cup of coffee in exchange for voting might actually be taken as offering them something in exchange for voting for a particular candidate or party.
That said, while it’s less than normal, a number of businesses are offering deals for voters today. For some, you’ll need to be wearing that sticker, while others are just offering Election Day deals that are available to everyone.
Before You Vote

New York and New Jersey residents can also use a Citibike for free to get to the polls today using the code BIKETOVOTE.
