(WTNH) – A frozen yogurt shop is trying to teach children about voting and the electoral process on Election Day.

sweetFrog Frozen Yogurt will allow kids to vote for red cherry or blueberry frozen yogurt flavors and their favorite topping.

“There’s been so much bitterness in this election that our local owners want to sweeten the process,” Matt Smith, sweetFrog’s Chief Marketing Officer, said. “We’re excited to show young customers that it’s fun to vote. We hope to teach children at a young age that voting is their civic responsibility and everyone has a voice in our country’s future.”

All kids who cast ballots will leave wearing their own “I Voted” sticker.
