It's a big day and you'll need your caffeine. Also, you just might need something to warm you up while you stand in line. You Betcha! This is only for Election Day.
I jumped out early this morning all prepared to wait in a long line to vote. As it turns out, it wasn't bad at all. All said and done, the process was just about one hour and 10 minutes. 65 minutes for the wait and processing and 5 minutes for the actual voting and exit.
The good news is - I hit my local Starbucks on the way out for my free cup of Java. I did it more for the experience than the free bee. It was great chatting with the excited voters in line and watching the bloggers sitting around enthusiastically typing away. But the rumor is true. Today Starbucks will be giving away one tall drip coffee to voters. Presumably, it's illegal to offer incentives to influence voting or non voting so Starbucks is not supposed to ask you if you voted or not. They're just suppose to give you your free coffee. The wait was short. A long line but the workers moved quickly. It took about 5 minutes. I guess it doesn't take long to pour 1 cup of coffee and pass it out when you don't have to take money and give change.
The next rumor..... They're giving away free donuts at Krispy Kreme. Not so sure I'll get by KK today but if you do - please leave a comment.....
