Election Day not only brings the promise of a new president for the next four years, some places are actually offering up free items to people who don the “I voted” sticker.
Local Krispy Kreme stores are giving away a free donut to those who stop by the local stores wearing the “I voted” stickers that are handed out at voting polls.
An employee at the Krispy Kreme on US Highway 49 in Gulfport said the store “was covered up” when contacted by phone Tuesday morning. Jackson County voters can also stop by the Krispy Kreme in Ocean Springs to get their own free donuts.
If donuts aren’t your thing, then how about a free pizza — just for doing your civic duty. Chuck E Cheese is giving away free personal pepperoni pizzas. Just be sure and use code #5252 or just tell your cashier you voted— but please, be honest.
One locally-owned business is also offering up a tasty sweet tear for those who exercised the right to vote. According to a post on Cheeky Monkey Cake Co.’s Facebook page, the DeBuys Road bakery has a buy a cupcake/get a free cupcake for voters wearing an “I voted” sticker.
