Get cheap beer when you vote in advance election polls
Here's a powerful reason to get your vote in early in the upcoming mayoral election - aside from avoiding lines at the polls, and the joys of exercising your civic duty, and all that other stuff. A new initiative, Happy Voting Hour, is hoping to raise voter participation in Toronto and encourage early voting through that great universal motivator: Beer and snacks.
Here's how it works: Several bars have volunteered to host free happy-hour events on days advance polls are open (October 14 to 19), offering inexpensive apps and beer. (Take note: You don't have to have voted to swing by, and the events are non-partisan - voters of all political stripes are welcome.) A few restaurants and bars, including Rock Lobster, Dog & Bear, Cadillac Lounge, and Le Petit Castor, have already signed on to serve this Wednesday and Thursday, with more expected to sign on in the next day or so.
