I'm not sure if you've heard or not, but Election Day on Tuesday, November 3 is kind of important. We're having an electrocution? No, that's not it. An election! Yeah, whatever that is, I'm still not sure. I wish they'd do a little more advance publicity for this thing. At the very least, it'd be nice if the news mentioned it once or twice, geez.
Even though this year was a bit maddening, voting is important. It's right up there with respecting your elders and always offering guests named Goob a glass of whiskey. So in celebration of every Hiffer fulfilling their civic duty, a few business are giving out election day freebies!
All offers are valid on Tuesday, November 3 only unless otherwise specified! I'll continue updating this post with any new freebies I find.
