Voting is not only your civic duty, but in Michigan it's a great way to get some discounts at area businesses.

I think giving discounts and freebies for voting only makes sense, especially considering the election cycle that we were all forced to witness.

So wear your 'I Voted' sticker proudly today, and waltz into the following businesses today for your discounts.

  • Krispy Kreme: Get any doughnut free
  • 7-Eleven: Use the 7-Eleven mobile app to get a free coffee
  • Bob Evans: 30% off your meal, when using this coupon
  • Chuck E. Cheese: Free personal pizza with any pizza purchase with this coupon
  • Firehouse Subs: Free medium drink with purchase with your 'I Voted' sticker
  • Uber: $20 toward a ride for new riders with the code 'VoteToday'

I'm surprised there aren't any bars offering discounts for voters that are looking to celebrate or drown their sorrows.

If you end up Wednesday morning with the harsh realization that your candidate didn't win, you could always take the advice listed below to get away from it all.
