$5 Burgers at BurgerFi
BurgerFi is playing off the “conflicting” feelings some voters have still not knowing which candidate to choose. The burger chain is offering $5 conflicted burgers on Election Day. That’s a Angus burger, veggie burger, American + white cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and BurgerFi sauce.
It’s clever marketing, but not much of a savings. Just $2.97 in my area, but a saving nonetheless.
Free or low-cost childcare at YMCA
At the YMCA, Zoe is running for President. The kid leader is offering free or low-cost childcare to parents who need to vote.
“Election Day is arguably one of the most important days in the U.S. this year — the ultimate opportunity for Americans to make their voices heard through the democratic process,” said Kevin Washington, President and CEO of YMCA of the USA. “Unfortunately, many people who want to vote find it challenging because they have to take children with them. The Y’s hope is that Zoe’s Kids Day Out initiative enables those parents and caregivers to exercise their right to vote, and ensures children can spend their time in a safe, nurturing environment.”
There are some rules like you can’t leave the building at some Y locations. Also, there are time limits, and some fees at some locations.
