Drink for Democracy is an event created to help motivate the Dallas community to get up and vote by bringing a social element to the voting process. The Official Drink for Democracy Happy Hour will take place on October 27 from 4 – 6pm at Dish Restaurant and Lounge but this easy-to-use website has created an incentive for potential drinkers to stay involved throughout the entire election period. Once you cast your vote, you will be eligible to receive a verification email that allows access to special Drink for Democracy deals at participating restaurants including The Union Bear, Zini’s Pizzeria and The People’s Last Stand.
Here’s How It Works:
Step 1: Visit the Drink for Democracy designated early voting polling locations (see below) from October 22-November 2
Step 2: Once you are at the polling location, look for the Drink for Democracy signs and scan our QR code with your smart phone*
Step 3: Enter your name and email address when prompted to receive an email with your verification code
Step 4: Show your verification email at any of the participating restaurants and Drink for Democracy!
So get on it, Dallas community! It’s a fun and easy way to start paying more attention to the election process if you’re not already into it. And if that’s not enough for you, just think of how fun it could be to clink together some pints with your friends and yell (all together of course) DRINK FOR DEMOCRACY! That’s almost reason enough right there.
