My mother shared this story from her polling place:
A man votes with his two sons. At this particular polling place, they give doughnuts to children after their parents vote. The election official hands both sons doughnuts and says, “You’ve done your civic duty; now you get a doughnut.”
The kids look at their father with wonder and say, “We can have doughnuts?” Their father nods and says, "Yes. With democracy, you get doughnuts."
