These chains are offering freebies and deals on Election Day

  • Midterm elections are happening across the United States on November 6.

  • Voter turnout typically isn't great for midterms, so some brands offer freebies and deals to those who show their "I Voted" stickers.

  • Offering free food as an incentive to voters falls in a legal gray area, but many brands get around that by offering the perks to anyone who asks for them, rather than only allowing voters to get the perks.

  • Here are the places offering deals this Election Day.

Midterm elections aren't known for great turnouts. To help change that, many brands are offering freebies and deals for voters.

Only about four in 10 eligible Americans vote in midterm elections, according to Fortune. In the past, stores like 7-Eleven and White Castle have offered incentives to customers who show an "I Voted" sticker.

There have been questions in the past whether brands' incentivizing voters is legal.

"It is illegal in elections when federal candidates are on the ballot to offer free stuff (including free food or drink) to people upon proof of voting," said Rick Hasen, a law professor at UC Irvine told Nation's Restaurant News.

However, many brands find a way around this by offering the perks to anyone who asks for them, not just to customers who show an "I Voted" sticker.
