Tuesday, November 6 is the day to cast a ballot for elected officials and initiatives. This date is impossible to miss, as this Election Day includes some hotly contested LA issues and close local races. These ballots are always lengthy, so might as well take advantage of the free cocktails, happy hours, discounted food, and drinks after visiting a polling station. Some require an “I voted” sticker, so keep it handy while providing a referendum on the City of Angels.

Here’s where to find LA’s discounted or free food and drinks on Election Day.
