Voter Perks: free coffee, beer, ice cream, pie or sex toys

I made sure to take care of voting first thing this morning, as I knew it would kill me to wait until after work. As confident as I feel in my choices, I am still a bit nervous. I fear that if the other candidate is selected, I might be forced to leave my homeland. As an American, I feel fortunate and as a Californian, very proud. So, this is a bold statement. Let’s put it this way, I will be depressed for days on end if the results are not what I had hoped.
In the meantime, while the anticipation beats us down, we can enjoy some election day perks! A bunch of businesses are handing out freebies today if you can prove by sticker or ballot stubs that you've voted.

For full info please read:
Election Day Perks: Businesses Hand Out Freebies to Voters
"...Among others, big businesses like Starbucks (coffee), Ben & Jerry's (ice cream), Krispy Kreme (star-shaped doughnuts with red, white and blue sprinkles) are handing out tasty treats..."

Pretty nice of them in our financial state, and just what I need: a sugar rush and more caffeine while I wait to hear the fate of my country. It's really too bad the other freebies aren't available near me; they sound a bit more relaxing.

If you haven't already... GO VOTE!
