Cast Your Votes in the 7-Election™ Presidential Coffee Cup Poll

Preliminary exit polling reveals that the clear winner after each 2016 Presidential Debate will be American coffee lovers. The day after the three presidential debates, 7‑Eleven will offer fresh-brewed coffee in its extra-large 7-Election™ Stay-Hot Cups – for just $1.

The first Dollar Coffee Day occurs tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 27, after the first debate and lasts all day at participating U.S.7‑Eleven stores. Coffee-quaffing voters simply need to download the 7‑Eleven mobile app, select one of the three 7-Election Presidential coffee cups, fill it to the brim … and scan the app for the dollar deal. The limited-time offer is available at participating locations. Pricing may vary by store. Tax where applicable.

“Democracy is brewing at 7‑Eleven, one cup of coffee at a time,” said Laura Gordon, 7‑Eleven vice president of marketing and brand innovation. “After watching the informative debates, we encourage every American to come in the next day to choose their favorite party in exchange for a great deal on coffee.”

2016 marks the fifth quadrennial 7-Election Presidential Coffee Cup Poll. The campaign invites 7‑Eleven customers to “cast their cups” by purchasing coffee in specially marked 7-Election Stay Hot Coffee cups – blue Democrat, red Republican and, new this year, a nonpartisan, purple Speak Up cup. Even on ordinary days, the cups are value priced at or between the regular retail prices of medium and large 7‑Eleven hot beverage cups.

“We think $1 coffee is an All-American perk that cuts across party lines,” Gordon added.

Coffee lovers can “vote” through Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8, simply by purchasing coffee in a 7-Election cup. Each post-debate vote will count toward the ongoing 7-Election campaign totals. In each of the previous 7-Election polls, a staggering 6 million cups (ballots) were cast, and results in each accurately predicted those in the “real” elections.

Be sure to tune into one or all of the 2016 Presidential Debates, which are currently scheduled as follows:

  • Sept. 26, 9 p.m. EDT, at Hofstra University, Long Island, N.Y.

7-Election cups are instantly tabulated at the register when the sale is made – and national, state and major city results reflecting the percentage of the three cups sold to date are posted daily on www.7Election.com.

Additionally, 7-Election cups count toward the retailer’s 7Rewards® “Buy Six, Get the Seventh Free” drink offer available on the 7‑Eleven mobile app in the United States. In addition to coffee, the 7Rewards program includes 7‑Eleven Slurpee®, Big Gulp® and Chillers® drinks.
