A nice bonus.
Today is election day in the US and with comes not only an opportunity to exercise your civic responsibility, right and privilege, but also to get a bunch of free food and services. Although ideally people would vote even if they didn't get a free side of fries in return, it's good that people are going to get to the polls somehow.
Uber and Lyft are both offering discounts today, taking their political rivalry to the next level. Uber, you may remember, has been boycotted after showing inadvertent support for Trump. The company declined to participate in a work stoppage that New York taxi drivers were engaged in to protest Trumps travel ban. Lyft became the service of choice for many people after the #deleteuber movement took hold. Now, both companies are offering deals on rides to the polls. Uber's is a discount only for first-time users if they put in a special election day code and Lyft is giving across the board 50% discounts for those going to vote.
There are also countless food deals, including this one from Shake Shack, where you can get free fries for showing up to the chain with an "I voted" sticker. Read an exhaustive list of the places where you can get free stuff here.
