“We want to sweeten Election Day by saying ‘thank you’ to those who participate at the polls,” said Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, in a statement. “It has been a long election season, and we think a free treat is the perfect way to reward voters.”
Of course, "long" is a helluva understatement, but then again, "raging dumpster fire" and "utter shitshow" probably aren't exactly on-brand for the sugary dough ring purveyor. What's most important here, though, is that the 2016 election will finally be over, and if you do your civic duty, you can even score a free donut out of it. So, we can't stress this enough, people: vote. Please, please vote.
