Chili’s: Sip away your election — and pandemic — stress with a Presidente Margarita for only $5 through Nov. 3. You can refresh yourself in the restaurant or by getting the drink to go. Plus, you’ll receive a free, limited-edition sticker that shows you support the El Presidente Margarita Party.

Enlightened: Snag a free Enlightened ice cream coupon just for showing the brand you voted and tagging it @eatenlightened. Fun suggestions include snapping a post-vote selfie, taking a picture of your “I Voted” sticker or telling why you think it’s important to vote. Plus, one lucky person will win a year’s worth of Enlightened.
