Vote... And Then Flash Your "I Voted" Sticker All Day Long

Free stuff? Good. Free stuff after voting in the most important election of our lifetimes? Even better.

Yep, I'll be in line for a free 12 oz. ("tall") coffee tomorrow at Starbucks. Perhaps at several locations.

And maybe, I'll also head to Krispy Kreme for a free star-shaped donut. And Ben & Jerry's for a free scoop.

Meanwhile, Thrillist has put together a list of other freebies or discounts tomorrow. Just flash your "I Voted" sticker:

"Healthy" Vote: O!Burger (8593 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood; 310.854.0234)
Buy a burger at this all-natural hole-in-the-wall and get a free order of fries or organic cookies -- whose organic crumbs will be telltale evidence that you voted for Nader.

Drinky Vote #1: Colorado Wine Co (2114 Colorado Blvd, Pasadena; 323.478.1985)
Take 50% off any of the 6-7 whites and reds this small shop'll be pouring -- perfect if you recently took 50% off your bank account.

Rockin' Vote: Amoeba Music (6400 Sunset Blvd, Hollywood; 323.245.6400)
The leviathan music store's handing out coupons good for $2 off anything -- a new cd, used vinyl, a poster from the Milli Vanilli show you hit on election night '88... Use your discount on Orrin Hatch's How His Glory Shines, and $2 will be taken off your soul.

Dessert Vote: Tart (115 S Fairfax, Mid-Wilshire; 323.556.2608
Tart's offering a free dessert to compliment discounted drinks and a special election menu that includes the likes of a caramelized onion, roasted red pepper & aioli "Bailout Burger". No purchase necessary for the dessert, but cheapskates run the risk of the waiter giving them "Bailout Eyes."

Lookin' Good Vote: Cristophe Salon (348 N Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills; 310.274.0851)
This Beverly Hills salon'll give you 50%-off gift certificates, and on-the-spot services you need (haircut), services you don't (coloring), and services you claim you don't (waxing).

Drinky Vote #2: Pitfire
At all the Pitfire pizzeria (in Downtown and North Hollywood)
The Downtown and North Hollywood outposts of this pizzeria mini-chain are offering your choice of either Edison Ale or an "Obama/McCain" limited-edition soda -- so basically, vote for Edison.

Lunchy Vote: Pink Taco (At Westfield Century City: 10250 Santa Monica Blvd, Century City; 310.789.1000)
Get a shot of well tequila and 3 free pink tacos -- a Clintonian deal hearkening back to the freewheeling days of Election '96.
