Wear your “I Voted” sticker and pick up some of these deals on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. If you vote early, save your sticker so you can wear it on Tuesday. Remember that participation may vary in some of these national promotions, so call ahead if you want to be sure.
The polls will be open in Sedgwick County from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. Be sure to wear your mask, wash your hands, and leave plenty of space between you and the other voters. The election workers will be there to give everyone instructions so you’ll know what to do and where to be.
Voting is FREE and aren’t we thankful it is? That right was more expensive than any other election day deal we’ve ever gotten, so be sure to take advantage of it. If you’re registered to vote in Kansas, find your polling place here.
(Speaking of the cost of freedom, we’re beginning to see several Veterans Day freebies and deals announced. Be sure to check them out if you are or know a veteran.)
