I’m so tired of seeing all the "free admission/ice cream/taco with an ‘I voted’ sticker" deals. Do all these businesses realize that 60 percent of all Coloradans voted early, most by mail?
And if you voted by mail in Denver, you did not get an "I Voted" sticker unless you delivered it by hand. (Some other metro counties, such as Jefferson, included stickers with their ballots.) That means that early Denver voters like myself are completely cut out of all the free deals described in this blog.
Stick it, Denver. -- Nancy Levine
