Free Krispy Kreme donuts on Election Day

By Emily Haile
updated February 21, 2017

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!

UPDATE Oct. 30 It turns out that Ben & Jerry's will be giving away free ice cream if you show your "I Voted!" sticker, too. (via a commenter on Grub Street)

But there's more than donuts!

Looking for an election night party? From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Omni Hotels across the country will hold "Election Night Returns!" events in their lobbies and lounges for guests and locals. Large-screen TVs will feature FOX News and CNN. There will be contests and special menu items, too. Details at OmniHotels.com.
