If you’re in line this Election Day, stay in line until you get to cast your ballot — and make sure to snag an “I Voted” sticker on the way out.
Across the city, Philadelphians are flocking to their nearest polling station to cast ballots in a handful of races that could determine everything from who benefits from the civil service exam to the future of abortion access in Pennsylvania.
It’s some high stakes stuff, and local businesses know it. A handful of restaurants and coffee shop are offering food and drink deals to add an incentive for doing your civic duty.
You can score perks like guided brewery tours and free pizza, so long as you flash your sticker (or just mention a trip to the polls).

Stop by the Point Breeze brewpub while donning an “I Voted” sticker and you can snag a token for a free guided brewery tour. Each tour walks through how Dock Street brews its award-winning (and bespoke-labeled) beer, and ends with a complimentary pint glass to take home.
Pizza to the Polls — a nonpartisan nonprofit that delivers free pizza to voters waiting in long polling lines — has one of its signature food trucks rolling around Philly this Election Day. The trucks come with La Colombe coffee, Kind Bars, live music from Questlove and — of course — free slices of ‘za. Anyone nearby can partake in the fun, and you can follow @joytothepolls on Instagram to find out when it’ll be stopping by a polling location near you.
