This election season, customers can cast their ballots - blue or red - with the purchase of their morning coffee.
Every four years, 7-Eleven unveils custom coffee cups for each presidential nominee and tracks the race for the White House through purchases. Dubbed “7-Election,” the unabashedly unscientific and just-for-fun poll has correctly mirrored the final results of the 2000, 2004 and 2008 elections with more than 6 million cups cast each election year.
In other words, they’ve created a bit of a coffee caucus. Final results will be announced on Nov. 6, Election Day.
To honor early voting, 7-Eleven is celebrating CofFREE Day on Friday, Sept. 28, one day before National Coffee Day, and inviting customers to vote for free on Friday morning. Everyone across the U.S. can make a stop at a participating 7-Eleven stores between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. to receive a free 20-ounce cup of hot coffee, cappuccino, latte or tea, while supplies last.
In Manhattan Beach, 7-Eleven is at 1221 Artesia Boulevard.
