Stuck in Line at the Polls? This Organization Will Send You Free Pizza


If you find yourself in a long voting line—whether during early voting or on election day, Tuesday, November 6—Pizza To The Polls will deliver FREE pizzas to your polling station. The nonprofit, founded in 2016, has raised $66,009 and delivered 2,873 pizzas, as of November 3 at 11:30 a.m.

Here’s how it works: If you’re stuck in line, go on the organization’s website: Enter a link to a social media post showing evidence of a long line (like a Tweet or Instagram) as well as the address of the polling place and your phone number or email address, if you want updates as to the status of your pizza.

Once Pizza To The Polls gets the request, they’ll order pizza from a local shop and send it your way. It’s that simple. The pizza is for everyone—voters, volunteers, kids there with their parents, even passersby.

Per the org’s website, it’s for “anyone else hungry for a slice.” The goal: make voting a little more celebratory, and give something back to people exercising their right to vote. Also on their website: “Ain’t nothing partisan about trying to make voting less of a drag.”
