Election Day is finally here.
People have been turning out in record numbers this election season to cast their ballots for the 2020 presidential election. There are still many, however, who are voting in-person at the polls today. Lines are sure to be long, but luckily, there are many businesses committed to rewarding voters and volunteers with special breaks and treats for their contributions to the electoral process.
Check out the following places where San Franciscans can look for some perks on this historic day:
Head to Krispy Kreme on Election Day for a free Original Glazed® Doughnut at any participating location in the US. In addition to their delicious classic donuts, they are also handing out ‘I Voted’ stickers, as many did not receive a sticker this year due to the new voting protocols and changes in voting locations.
