Otter Vote

Election Day Specials

There are fewer freebies this year than the last election.  Apparently, it’s illegal to reward people for voting.  What is this, North Korea?

Once again, politics got in the way of itself, and DCist has the scoop.  They’re all crooks anyhow, if you ask me.

Free beer be damned, don’t cheat yourself out of these great deals on Election Day tomorrow, November 6, 2012.

From $20 dinners to open bars to free treats in limbo, you’re always a winner.  Who loves you more than me..and your mother?
