Be sure to hang onto that “I Voted!” sticker.

(Or, if you voted early, it might be worth digging it up!)

Because tons of places are offering freebies and discounts to people who head to the polls on Election Day.

Here’s what you can expect for Tuesday:

7-Eleven
Customers who download the 7-Eleven mobile app, available in the App Store or Google Play, can receive a free cup of coffee at participating shops.

Bob Evans
With this coupon, take 30% off your order on Election Day.

California Tortilla
If you say “Make queso great again,” “I’m with queso” or “I vote for queso,” you’ll receive a complimentary order of chips and queso (with any purchase). This offer is available nationwide.

Chuck E. Cheese’s
Get a free personal-sized pepperoni pizza with the purchase of another pizza. Mention code #5253.

East Coast Wings and Grill
Anyone can take advantage of five free honey-BBQ wings with the purchase of an adult entree.

Firehouse Subs
Receive a free medium drink when you show your sticker. (And if you voted early and misplaced it, just download the app and you’ll still get a free drink, Firehouse says).

Gold’s Gym
Participating locations will offer free access for the day if you bring your sticker.

GoToMeeting
If you sign up by Tuesday, you’ll be able to use the web conferencing service free for 30 days.

Great American Cookies
Show your sticker to receive a free regular cookie.

Krispy Kreme
You’ll get a free glazed doughnut when you wear the sticker. Although, heads up before you head out the door — not all Krispy Kreme locations are participating. Check on your local shop here.

Marco’s Pizza
If you vote for Marco’s Pizza, the chain will offer you a voucher for a free medium one-topping pizza.

Nestle Toll House Cafe
Anyone wearing the sticker will receive a free chocolate chip cookie — (participating locations only).

Noodles & Company
If you vote for your favorite mac and cheese on the company’s website, you’ll receive a buy-one-get-one coupon for any regularly sized bowl.

Schlotzksy’s
Buy one, get one macaroni and cheese with the code 4207.

Tijuana Flats
Show your sticker to receive a free side, the taco chain said on Twitter.

Uber
First-time users can get $20 off with the promo code “VOTETODAY.” A special feature inside the app also will help you find your precinct.

White Castle
If you buy a Crave Case, you can get a free gallon of iced tea. Order online with promo code USA.

World of Beer
If you ask your server or bartender for a pint of common good, your first beer is $1.

YMCA
Some locations are offering free child care, so that parents can go vote. This is already free for members. Check to see if the YMCA near you is participating.

Zipcar
More than 7,000 cars across the country will be free. Members can reserve online (while they’re still available), and then the vehicles are free between the hours of 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. local time Tuesday.

Again, although we tried to indicate above, you'll want to check local availability before heading out. Participation does vary.

Oh, and the best freebie you’ll receive all day? The sticker itself, of course! … Or the rewarding feeling that comes with fulfilling your civic duty. May the best candidate win and your stomachs remain full.
