Andersonville Businesses Team Up To Offer Election Day Specials

Andersonville businesses are banding together around Election Day on November 6. Organized by Hallie Borden, owner of  Milk Handmade, not only are these businesses encouraging you to VOTE in the midterm election, but they are offering incentives to vote with your dollar as well.

A message from campaign organizer, Hallie Borden:

“Did you know it’s illegal for businesses to offer a discount or freebie for voting? Well, it’s also illegal to suppress voting rights, fire someone because of their gender identity, and grab women by the you know what… so…

We hope you vote on November 6th. We sure will. And there’s another kind of voting that we hope you remember to do all year round — the kind where you vote with your dollar. Where you choose not to support corporations owned by people lobbying against humanity and the planet. Where you seek out businesses who do good in their communities, support fair wages, and try their hardest to be friends to the environment. Where you funnel money into your neighborhood economy, not into the pockets of shareholders.

We are teaming up with other businesses in the Andersonville neighborhood to offer discounts and freebies on Election Day. Go vote on November 6th. Then go support the businesses who are trying to make this world a little better. We can’t legally require you to vote before taking advantage of these offers. But we can tell you this: anyone who doesn’t vote gets a free eye roll with purchase.

Your vote counts. Your voice counts. Your money counts. On November 6th, let’s turn this ship in the right direction.”
