It’s finally Election Day! That’s already reason to celebrate, but several restaurants, bakeries, breweries and bars are offering discounts to sweeten the deal. Get out and vote, then show your sticker or mention your trip to the polls to score these specials around the Philly region.

The Baker’s Jar

At her petite shop just south of South Street, sweets master Avery Goldman is giving a free chocolate chip cookie to everyone with a sticker. 625 S. 16th St.

Waffles & Wedges

Show off your “I Voted” badge and score a free sweet topping for the Liege waffles at Andrea Capecci and Laura Judy’s corner shop. 1511 Pine St.

Shake Shack

You don’t even have to prove you voted to score a free scoop of custard at any outpost of the green-emblazoned burger spot; just mention the promotion and it’s yours. 2000 Sansom St.; 3200 Chestnut St.; 160 N. Gulph Rd., King of Prussia

Dock Street Brewery

Sweet Freedom Bakery

At all three locations of this dairy-nut-gluten-egg-allergen-free bakeshop, use your vote as a stepping stone to the future — the near future — and show your sticker to get 10 percent off your holiday pie order. 1424 South St.; 1029 W. Lancaster Ave., Bryn Mawr; 577 Haddon Ave., Collingdwood, NJ

Taproom on 19th

It’s not just Election Day, it’s also Taco Tuesday, so head to this Girard Estate tavern with your proof of voting and score a free Tecate to help wash those tortillas down. 2400 S. 19th St.

Whipped Bakeshop

Wear your sticker to this Fishtown cake and cookie hall of fame and cop a free red-white-and-blue funfetti cupcake with any purchase. 636 Belgrade St.

Before they outlawed it, trading whiskey for votes used to be a thing. Do it the legal way by showing your “I Voted” badge at this Fairmount bar — you’ll unlock $5 Bulleit bourbons, $5 pints and $5 champagne. 2301 Fairmount Ave.

The Avenue Deli

Show your sticker and scoop a free cuppa joe to go with your pancakes or Turkey special at this Jewish-Italian delicatessen and cafe. 27 N. Lansdowne Ave., Lansdowne
