No matter which way you vote next year on Tuesday November 5, we can all get behind getting free stuff from restaurants and other companies. Like they did in 2023, businesses are drawing awareness to the 2024 elections and will offer Election Day freebies, deals or discounts. Although we don’t about specific deals for the upcoming presidental election, here’s a look back at the offers we found in 2023 that we expect to see again next year. We’ll update this post as the election gets closer.

On Election Day every two years, businesses bring awareness to the election with freebies and deals.

Businesses offer deals on Election Day to encourage and celebrate voting. We’ve seen businesses offer freebies with purchases, discounted meals, and promotional prices on entertainment. In past years, companies like Krispy Kreme, Starbucks, and Dave & Buster’s have participated, offering free donuts, discounted drinks, and half-priced games, respectively.

The next Presidential Election Day will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2024.


Although elections happen throughout the year, you can expect Federal elections to take place every two years on the first Tuesday (after the first Monday) in November. In 2024 that date is Tuesday, Nov. 5.
