It’s now Election Day in now open in Travis County for the Texas midterm elections, and Austin restaurants are ready to encourage people to go out and perform their civic duties in the form of free or discounted food for voters.

It’s important to note that, technically, offering free food and drinks to voters is illegal. However, restaurants can legally get around that by opening up these offers to everyone, even those without “I Voted” stickers.

Here are the Austin restaurants offering free food or discounts to voters (and, legally, non-voters). Texas’s early voting period runs from Monday, October 24 through Friday, November 4, and election day is Tuesday, November 8.

Update, Tuesday, November 8, 4:07 p.m.: This article, originally published on October 27, has been updated to include additional offers.
