Today’s the day — Election Day, that is. With so much at stake, there’s reason enough for you to take some time out of your day to head to the polls. Now, Shake Shack is making the prospect of letting your voice be heard even better with the reward of free fries just for voting.

All you have to do is vote for your free fries — it’s simple. On Tuesday after you hit the polls, head to your local Shake Shack and show them your “I Voted” sticker, and you’ll get a free order of fries with your purchase.

The best way to get an entirely free purchase? Pair your “I Voted” sticker with the American Express® Gold Card. With the card, you get a $10 monthly dining credit. So, you can “purchase” a milkshake and/or burger with the credits from your Gold Card and then get the fries for free. Of course, just be sure to bring your sticker with you.

As a reminder, the Amex Gold Card comes with a sign-up bonus of 25,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $2,000 within the first three months. You get 4x points at US restaurants, 4x points at US supermarkets (on up to $25,000 per year in purchases) and $120 in dining credits to use with participating partners annually.

No matter your views, TPG encourages you to get out and vote on Tuesday. And don’t forget there are several ways to get to the polls for free.
