We have about 28 hours left until the results come rolling in on our next president of our country – and we’re all more or less in a patriotic mood, doing what we need to do to fulfill our duties as US citizen. Election campaigns have been in full swing, from left and right (literally), in what will truly be a significant moment in American history (giving ol’ Bushie the boot). I’ve even gotten a couple of voicemails from strange voices telling me to vote for certain propositions (NO ON PROP 8!). Anyway, whatever your position and views, get out there and vote. There are even a few rewards you can reap by simply voting and participating in the elections. Click to find out how!


And for the LA area, taken from

Krispy Kreme
KK’s giving out a free, star-shaped ‘nut with red, white, and blue sprinkles, letting you pledge allegiance to the thing you care about most: healthcare reform.
Get all doughy at

8593 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood; 310.854.0234
Buy a burger at this all-natural hole-in-the-wall and get a free order of fries or organic cookies — whose organic crumbs will be telltale evidence that you voted for Nader.

Colorado Wine Co
2114 Colorado Blvd, Pasadena; 323.478.1985
Take 50% off any of the 6-7 whites and reds this small shop’ll be pouring — perfect if you recently took 50% off your bank account.

Amoeba Music
6400 Sunset Blvd, Hollywood; 323.245.6400
The leviathan music store’s handing out coupons good for $2 off anything — a new cd, used vinyl, a poster from the Milli Vanilli show you hit on election night ’88… Use your discount on Orrin Hatch’s How His Glory Shines, and $2 will be taken off your soul.


115 S Fairfax, Mid-Wilshire; 323.556.2608
Tart’s offering a free dessert to compliment discounted drinks and a special election menu that includes the likes of a caramelized onion, roasted red pepper & aioli “Bailout Burger”. No purchase necessary for the dessert, but cheapskates run the risk of the waiter giving them “Bailout Eyes”.

Cristophe Salon
348 N Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills; 310.274.0851
This Beverly Hills salon’ll give you 50%-off gift certificates, and on-the-spot services you need (haircut), services you don’t (coloring), and services you claim you don’t (waxing).

5405 Wilshire Blvd, Mid-Wilshire; 323.330.9505
This freelancer workspace is offering up a free spot at their workbar; since freelancers generally accomplish one task per day max, expect plenty of room to sidle up.

At all the Pitfires in Downtown and North Hollywood
The Downtown and North Hollywood outposts of this pizzeria mini-chain are offering your choice of either Edison Ale or an “Obama/McCain” limited-edition soda — so basically, vote for Edison.

Pink Taco
At Westfield Century City: 10250 Santa Monica Blvd, Century City; 310.789.1000
Get a shot of well tequila and 3 free pink tacos — a Clintonian deal hearkening back to the freewheeling days of Election ’96.

O’Neill Flagship
321 N Katella, Anaheim; 714.635.0424
This surf brand’s offering 25% off t-shirts/denim/hoodies/etc — everything except wetsuits, making it that much more expensive to defect to Cuba if your guy loses.

I’ve tried to maintain a neutral stance, but I cannot help but to show this side of Obama – SO CUTE!

Oh, and Zac Posen wants you to Fashion the Vote: what will you wear on November 4? (And remember, no clothing specific apparel!)

ELECTIONS 2008!! Making history, son!
