Some lucky early voters got a special treat after exercising their civic duty Monday.

The Tampa Bay Lightning let fans who cast their ballots pose with the Stanley Cup on the first day of early voting at Amalie Arena.

The team's mascot, Thunderbug, was on hand to help out.

The Lightning will host early voting at their home arena until Nov. 1, and voters can also drop off their mail-in ballots at the arena.

Citizens can vote early at any convenient polling location or at their assigned polling location on Election Day, Nov. 3.

Many took the opportunity to vote and see the Cup, which Tampa Bay won against the Dallas Stars in six games in the Stanley Cup Final.

Those who voted before 2 p.m. E.T. could pose for photos with the Cup.
