Persuading You To Vote w/ Free Coffee = Illegal…

So apparently it is against the law to persuade people to vote by offering them free stuff like coffee or t-shirts or even limo rides.  Starbucks found out about this quickly after launching a campaign to get everyone to vote by offering them free coffee:

Don’t worry though, Starbucks is just going to give out free coffee to all anyways.  So go out and get some free joe.

The wife and I voted this morning.  There were a lot more people in line this year around…  Should be an interesting and close called result.  We’ll see what happens.
