Voting tomorrow? Already voted early? If you haven't, Starbucks may just provide the energy you need to fill in those ovals tomorrow.
Nationwide, they'll be offering a free Tall (12 oz.) coffee to anyone who says they voted early or on November 4. They're not the only national chain offering election discounts, either. There's a long list of eateries offering free items or great deals on Election Day, including Pizza Hut, Krispy Kreme and Ben & Jerry's. (There are other free offers that we'd like to point out for our more "advanced" readers, too. May be NSFW.)
However, these chains have recently come under fire for potentially breaking certain states' election laws. The jury's out, so to speak, about the offers' legality, but right now they look like they're still available! So get out there and vote, and then make the rounds to collect your free ice cream, doughnuts and coffee.

UPDATE: Starbucks has responded officially on their Twitter account. Here's what they had to say about the whole legality of the situation:
IMPORTANT: To ensure that we are in compliance with election law, we are extending our offer to all customers who request a tall brewed drip
Free coffee for everyone! (Almost as good as Taco Bell's World Series promotion.)
