While we always have the best of intentions when it comes to voting, of course, there are plenty of outside factors that can make us want to stay home. Maybe you don’t live in a swing state or you don’t particularly like either of the candidates, which makes you not too motivated to get a free sticker today. While those may be common excuses, the biggest one by far is the wait in line you’ll almost certainly have to endure in order to make your vote for the next President of the United States. Especially if you live in a state that doesn’t allow early voting, you can expect lines upwards of an hour outdoors in the cold that might just make you want to stay home.
But if you only have an hour for lunch and are deciding between grabbing some grub or punching a ballot, your problems have officially been solved. Pizza at the Polls has come to the rescue and will be delivering free, fresh, hot pizza to the longest lines at your nearby polling places. If you head over to their website, you can either report long lines to request a pizza delivery, or you can donate to the pizza fund and ensure that everyone giving up their lunch hour for their civic duty at least gets a slice of pepperoni as a reward for their good deed.
So far, users have donated almost $20K to deliver free pizza to polling places around the country, so if you’re looking for an excuse to get out and vote, free pizza sounds like as good of an excuse as any. If you’ve already voted and have a couple extra dollars, you can also chip in so that others making that final decision to go vote might finally be swayed by the promise of a free lunch and a more enjoyable wait in line – just submit your location and proof of the long line to the website, and a delivery will be on its way in no time. If there are any funds left over, Pizza to the Polls promises to use extra money to feed hungry Americans so this is really a win/win situation. Get yourself to the polls and grab a slice (and a donut) for America. .
