Starbucks: Vote Equals Free Cup

Starbucks Coffee Inc. is launching a "get out the vote" drive with free coffee for anyone who votes in the Tuesday election.

Getting up early to vote tomorrow? Hit Starbucks when you are done, and get a free cup of Joe. Maybe they should have called it a "Joe the Plumber" java giveaway?

Seattle-based Starbucks will announce an initiative Monday night to give away a free “tall” (12-ounce) sized cup of coffee to anyone who went to the polls to vote. The announcement will air in an advertisement during the "Saturday Night Live Presidential Election Bash." The show will air at 9 p.m. on NBC.

The idea is to encourage customers to vote, the company said.

Voters can show their state’s “I voted” sticker for proof. There is a limit of one cup per customer.
The company said in areas where there is no proof of voting, the giveaway will be done on the honor system.
