Both Nando's and Galito's will sell you half-price chicken today – but you have to vote for the Nando's
- Flame-grilled chicken chains Nando's and Galito's both have R25 specials on to celebrate the national and provincial elections.
- That's just about half price for a quarter chicken and some starch.
- Nando's requires that you show you voted – but that comes with chips, compared to the open-to-everyone but chip-free Galito's offer.

Flamed-grilled chicken restaurant chains Nando's and Galito's are offering nearly identical deals to celebrate the general elections in South Africa: a quarter-chicken meal for R25.
For the Nando's offer, which comes with chips and a roll, that represents a discount of around 50% on its usual menu price, or more if you really want that roll instead of a cooldrink, which is its usual packaging.
At Galito's, which is selling only a quarter chicken and a roll to celebrate 25 years of democracy, the effective discount is 42%.
In return for that portion of chips, Nando's will require you to show a thumb marked with the indelible ink intended to prevent double-voting. The chip-less Galito's has no such requirement.
The Galito's offer is valid only on Wednesday, while the Nando's offer still runs into Thursday.

Both offers come with terms and conditions: Galito's has limited its R25 chicken to four per customer, while Nando's says it will limit the number of the combos at each of its stores.
Several other food chains are giving away voter incentives today: Wimpy will give you a free coffee for showing a marked thumb, while Mike's Kitchen is also offering free coffee – as long as you buy a meal.
Meanwhile Uber is offering R50 off e-hailing rides to and from voting stations, as long as you use the right discount code.
