While Downtown Credo is offering Orlando voters a free coffee on Election Day, on the other side of the beverage spectrum, Winter Park's New Standard is offering something that may very well be even more useful on Nov. 3: a free drink.

The New Standard is offering a free beverage during happy hour on Election Day (Tuesday, Nov. 3 – never hurts to repeat it) from 4-7 p.m. if you flash your "I Voted" sticker.

It's the perfect prelude to a long night of watching the poll results and flashing between cautious optimism and a sense of doom.
