Houstonians have embraced early voting in record numbers. Whether someone’s betting on Beto or crushing on Cruz, the turnout for this year’s vote has exceeded expectations for a non-presidential election.

Houston restaurants wants to reward people for their civic-mindedness. Sporting an “I Voted” sticker can reap some serious rewards. Head to the following establishments for the following discounts. CultureMap will update this list periodically as more details are brought to our attention.

At Feges BBQ in Greenway Plaza, patrons will receive 10-percent off their orders. Just remember to vote early in the day — the restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch.

Goodnight Charlie’s offers happy hour pricing all day to voters. That means half-off wine and frozen drinks, $3 for all canned or bottled beer, and three tacos and a beer (bottle or can) for $10.

At UB Preserv, voters may take advantage of the “power hour special.” Usually only available on Sundays from 3 to 4 pm, the offer includes a beer, a shot, and an order of boudain shumai for just $15.

Heights-area coffee shop Morningstar will pour voters a free cup of drip coffee. Feel free to treat yourself to a doughnut as a reward for doing your civic duty.

Sud Italia in Rice Village will serve voters a complimentary glass of wine. All the better to enjoy chef Maurizio Ferrarese’s Southern Italian fare.

Wear an "I Voted" sticker at Hay Merchant and be rewarded with half-off Houston beers. 

The Flying Saucer in downtown is offering 10-percent off food (alcohol excluded) to people wearing an "I Voted" sticker.

Waiting until Election Day to vote has its own rewards. At The Classic All Day, voters will receive a complimentary lunch or dinner (choice of one entree and one appetizer, alcohol and gratuity not included).
