Raise your hand if you've uttered these famous last words: "If [my candidate] doesn't win, I'm leaving the country!"
Now, you'll have the chance to do just that, thanks to a simple ballot from JetBlue.
“On November 6th, America will elect the next U.S. president,” the airline says on their Election Protection website. “If things don’t go your way, don’t worry. Here’s your chance to get a free flight out of the country with JetBlue. Participate in our election protection poll to enter. And remember if you change your mind you can always come back. Or not. It’s a free country.”
The "Live Free or Fly" campaign is simple: participate in the online poll by choosing Republican or Democrat (JetBlue swears your vote will remain anonymous). From there, you'll get a choice of countries you would want to flee to (where jetBlue has flights) if your candidate doesn't win. The JetBlue poll will post your country of choice to your Facebook page and you'll be automatically entered to win a free ticket to flee if things don't go your way on Nov. 6.
Choose from Mexico, Costa Rica, Barbados, St. Lucia, Dominican Republic, Turks & Caicos, the Bahamas and more, if you want to flee the U.S. (I suggest you do some research ahead of time to ensure these countries fit your lifestyle and political preferences.)
Here's a quick video to explain the concept:
