Pizza to the Polls

Poll lines are inevitable today, but one company is looking to help out any hungry and exhausted people stuck waiting to vote.

Grassroots initiative Pizza to the Polls delivers free pizza to hungry Americans at polls across the country.

So if you hear your stomach start to growl while waiting to vote at a polling location, hop over to the website and report a long line. By submitting a link from Twitter or Instagram that shows how busy the polling location is and including its address, it’s likely a pizza could be on its way.
