Election Day Freebies in West Michigan
How about a reward for casting your vote today?! There are some companies in west Michigan that are offering up Election Day Freebies!
How about a free donut from Krispy Kreme! Any customer wearing a sticker indicating that they have voted will receive one free doughnut of choice today at participating stores. Jackie Woodward, chief marketing officer commented, “We want to sweeten Election Day by saying ‘thank you’ to those who participate at the polls. It has been a long election season, and we think a free treat is the perfect way to reward voters.”
To make it easier for parents to vote, the YMCA is offering child care. The organization is calling the free child care initiative "Zoe’s Kids Day Out" and hopes that providing the service will help parents and caregivers get out and vote. While many YMCAs are offering the service for free, some require a nominal fee or donation. The YMCA President and CEO Kevin Washington said, "Election Day is arguably one of the most important days in the U.S. this year — the ultimate opportunity for Americans to make their voices heard through the democratic process. Unfortunately, many people who want to vote find it challenging because they have to take children with them. The Y’s hope is that Zoe’s Kids Day Out initiative enables those parents and caregivers to exercise their right to vote, and ensures children can spend their time in a safe, nurturing environment." But make sure you check with your local Y before dropping off the kids — not every location is offering it.
