Need something to occupy your time/take your mind off things right now? Writing postcards to registered Democrat voters around the country is a great way to actively support Democratic candidates at all levels of state and federal government.
You have several options for GOTV efforts in support of Democratic candidates this fall:
- The Postcard Writing Action Team (PoWAT) in Ward 6's southwest neighborhood has been working with Postcards to Voters for almost two years helping in a wide range of special elections, vote by mail campaigns, and regularly scheduled elections. Postcards to Voters works with the candidates’ campaigns around the country to identify registered Democrats. You supply the postcards and stamps. Once a week, you will receive a call to writing and receive a list of five or ten voters to whom you can address cards with some prepared text options. You decide when to get involved. Lists are only sent when you say you want to participate. If you would like to get involved, email Gabriele Strauch at email@example.com.
- Start your own postcard writing group. Visit Postcards to Voters at https://postcardstovoters.org/ to find out how to work with them and get a group going.
- Sister District DC/NoVa also has opportunities to get involved with postcard writing. Find out more at https://sisterdistrict.com/volunteer/washington-dc.
- Swing Left is running a letter-writing campaign called The Big Send. You can find out more about what's involved and sign up to participate at https://votefwd.org/bigsend/swingleft.
Let's flip some more seats blue this fall!
