Tuesday, November 6, 2018

As voters around the country hit the polls, restaurants and other businesses want to make sure they are rewarded with deals.

If you're voting on Tuesday, you can hitch a ride for a discount, and after that you can take advantage of a number of other deals.

Many of these deals give you the option to use a code rather than to prove you voted. Under federal law, "whoever solicits, accepts, or receives any such expenditure in consideration of his vote or the withholding of his vote" could be subject to a fine.


Many cities are offering free public transportation. In addition, businesses are offering discounts, citing studies that say transportation issues provide a barrier to voting.
