Do your eyes glaze over just thinking about politics these days? Well, here's your chance to get something else glazed: International cruller chain Krispy Kreme is giving away free donuts on November 4th to anyone who votes in the general election. I guess every little bit helps! Apparently, the donuts will be in patriotic colors. Click here to find a location near you. One per customer.
I realize this is tangential to "budget travel" but, heck, it's "free" and you have to "travel" to get it, right? And who doesn't love tasty donuts!
But there's more than donuts!
