Today’s Action: Join the #RNCTurnoff and volunteer against Trump’s re-election!

The Republican National Convention is underway – a rolodex of Trump family members and top cronies who have enabled and cheered on Trump’s four-year deadly and brutal attack on civil rights, human rights, and the Constitution.

Instead of tuning in, put some work in to oust this roster: join in on the #RNCTurnoff by volunteering to Get Out The Vote this November!

#RNCTurnoff goal: write letters to 40 Democratic voters in swing states to Get Out The Vote this November. Create your account and adopt addresses with Vote Forward!

Historically, at best, about 60% of eligible Americans turn out to vote during presidential election years. That missing 40% do not 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 swinging those purple states blue.

Vote Forward has identified 7 million voters we need to reach to defeat Trump and flip the Senate, and they make it easy with pre-prepped letters and address lists. It takes about two hours to write 40 letters. With a goal of 7 million, we need everyone to chip in…but this is an entirely doable goal.

Get Out The Vote and defeat Trump by writing letters to Democratic voters in key swing states. Commit to 40 today as part of the #RNCTurnoff!

PS: Today is another National Day of Action for the Save the United States Postal Service. Join an event near you, or start your own!
