Seriously?

Today’s Action: Write letters NOW to get out the vote in November

 

We are now five months away from the end of the Trump presidency…IF we put in the hard work to achieve that dream.

Historically, at best, about 60% of eligible Americans turn out to vote during presidential election years. That missing 40% chooses not to show up for a variety of reasons – but at least some of them would with a bit of encouragement that their voices actually do matter.

Trump lost the popular vote in 2016 by 2.9 million votes – but he won enough votes in enough key states to win the electoral college. With high turnout expected from Republicans, we must focus our efforts on turning those purple states blue.

Use Vote Forward to write letters to Democratic voters in key swing states to help Get Out The Vote this November – then mark your calendar to mail the letters on October 27th. Make a goal to add 40+ letters to your pile each month!

There are millions of registered Democratic voters in swing states that we must reach between now and November if we want to push that progressive turnout percentage to an all-time high. But if we try to get to them all in the last weekend before Election Day, we physically could not succeed.

Slow-but-steady wins the race. Writing letters and stockpiling them over the next nine months is one of the best ways to make high-impact, personal contact with other voters, especially if you live in a safely blue (or impossibly red) area.

We have the votes to defeat Trump. Now is the time to ensure we have them in the right places.

Get Out The Vote and defeat Trump by writing letters to Democratic voters in key swing states. Then, be sure to mail the letters on October 27th. Committing to writing 40+ letters a month means personally contacting at least 200 voters this November!
