Chik-fil-A also did free nuggets and there's a BBQ place near my house that did entire free meals (BBQ, side & drink) for voters wearing their stickers.

Starbucks vote promo gets decaffeinated Posted: Tuesday, November 04, 2008 3:36 PM by Carrie Dann

From NBC's Pete Williams

Starbucks, which announced in an ad on "Saturday Night Live" that it would give a free coffee to anyone who came in on Election Day and said, "I voted," has been forced to change its plan.

 

Now anyone who wants the free coffee gets it, voter or not.

 

It turns out that a giveaway to voters could violate election laws in some states that prohibit gifts for voters. While these laws are generally intended to discourage attempts to influence voters, the lawyers were worried the Starbucks policy might be a violation.

 

"To ensure we are in compliance with election law, we extended our offer to all customers who request a tall brewed coffee," says Tara Darrow of Starbucks.
