In typical fashion, rapper Frank Ocean is making headlines with a tumblr post.

The internet flyer—first spotted by Pitchfork—details a series of four pop-ups in Houston, Dallas, Miami, and Atlanta where fans can receive free merch with proof that they voted in today's midterm elections. You'll find the Houston pop-up at Premium Goods over in Rice Village. 

Social media posts suggest the swag includes T-shirts, stickers, and bookmarks all stamped with a huge "42%" as a callback to the percentage of voters who sat out the 2016 election. 

You can indirectly thank Beto for this pleasant surprise. Each of the four locations was chosen in recognition of a particularly high-stakes political matchup. Florida and Georgia vote today in two hotly contested gubernatorial races, and Dallas and Houston seemed like natural choices given the historic potential to elect "the first democratic senator in Texas in 24 years” (whether or not that's a good thing is up to you).

As of noon, lines were already stretched to the parking lot, so no guarantees you'll score a shirt.
