I Voted...Did You??

I normally have a tough time getting out of bed, but this morning was different because I was excited about voting. I was worried it was going to be packed, but I was able to walk right up to one of the electronic machines and VOTE! No stickers available at my locations - bogus! After voting I went to Starbucks and got my FREE drip coffee for voting. I've never ordered drip coffee from anywhere in my life, so this was a new experience for me. I find it kind of crazy that we are rewarded for voting when there are people in other countries that would give just about anything for the ability to vote.
GET OUT THERE AND VOTE!!

P.S. I was a bit shocked to see the red holiday Starbucks cups already out - here's my first (of many) of the holiday season!

It's only 9:30 and I feel like I've already accomplished so much.

This just in...I was just talking to a co-worker that said Starbucks can not legally "bribe" people to vote by giving away free coffee. Therefore, even if you choose not to vote (in my opinion, I don't understand why you wouldn't) you will get a free starbucks.

From Starbucks: IMPORTANT: To ensure that we are in compliance with election law, we are extending our offer to all customers who request a tall brewed drip

Too bad it's not a free latte.
