In addition to the donut giveaway, Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop team members will be surprising and delighting voters with free donuts, muffins and coffee outside select polling stations in Ohio, Michigan and Buffalo. The onsite team members will be asking voters if they prefer a coffee and donut, or a latte and muffin as their morning breakfast choice. The team will share the results on Tim Hortons U.S. Facebook page throughout Election Day.

Later in the week on Veterans Day ( November 11), Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop is giving all active and inactive U.S. military veterans a free donut in an effort to thank them for their service and dedication to their country. No purchase is necessary. Veterans need to either be in uniform or show their military ID when they visit a Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop. "The free donut to our veterans is just a small way for us to give back to those who give so much, every day," added Meilleur.
