So you woke up at the crack of dawn to vote and secured your "I Voted" sticker. Well, the freebies don't stop there. Of course, we don't need any incentives to exercise our right to to participate in democracy, but several brands are encouraging customers to get out and cast their ballots today anyway.

Although it's technically illegal for brands to give out incentives for voting (the laws vary from state to state), especially if there are federal candidates on the ballot, businesses are still taking the chance in hopes of getting more people to participate in Election Day 2018. The good news is, these laws are rarely enforced, and when they are, brands can avoid penalties by just making the deal available to everyone. Which is to say: Go ahead and redeem that Lyft code or J.Crew discount. You've earned it.

The best discounts for voting (or not — but really, you should still vote) on Election Day 2018 are all below.
