Election season is in full swing and people are getting out to vote in near-record numbers. Some Austin businesses are encouraging voting by rewarding you for doing your civic duty this year.

Here's what you can cash in on with your "I voted" or "Yo voté" sticker.


Home Slice Pizza, one free slice

Two words: free pizza. Bring your "I voted" sticker anytime during early voting to either location at 1415 S. Congress Ave. or 501 E. 53rd St., and you'll receive a free slice of pie. When you arrive, you'll be asked to put your sticker on their commemorative wall, but don't worry, they'll trade you for a new one.

Paprika ATX, one free carnitas taco

At Paprika ATX, 6519 N. Lamar Blvd., your voting sticker will get you a free carnitas taco while supplies last, daily. That's code for "vote early!"

Pinthouse Pizza, $1 off a pint of beer

Visit any of the three locations throughout early voting season for $1 off a pint of your choice through Oct. 30. Careful, you have to be on the waitlist to cash in on this deal.

Soup Peddler, free 8 ounce soup

Bring your sticker to any of Soup Peddler's six locations during the early voting period and they will reward you with 8 ounces of your favorite soup. If you voted by mail, simply take a selfie with your blank ballot and you'll receive the same deal.

St. Elmo Brewing Company, free half pint

You read that right—free beer. Your voting sticker will get you a half pint brew of your choice, free of charge anytime during early voting at St. Elmo, 440 E. St. Elmo Rd. You can also pick up a "Vote" t-shirt or mask while you're there.

The Texas Department of State Health Services will allocate 332,750 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to 212 providers this week, with the bulk assigned to hub providers that are focused on widespread community distribution events. Six of those providers are in Travis County.

With the latest allocation of 16,450 sent to Travis County this week, the county will have received 104,275 doses of the vaccine. Local public health officials estimate that there are 285,000 area residents who fall in the 1A and 1B priority groups, meaning that around 37% of them should have access to doses seven weeks into the rollout process.

Here's where the latest allotment is going:
