Krispy Kreme is giving away glazed donuts to everyone along with a special voting sticker while offering it last Tuesday. Planet Fitness is offering a way to ease election stress with a free workout and massage from Tuesday to November 8.
With more mail ballots and early voting this year, fewer people will have a “I Vote” sticker as evidence that they voted. Under federal law, it is technically illegal to offer free gifts in exchange for votes, and businesses often get around this by offering transactions to everyone.
