Today’s Action: Write letters to register voters and overturn gerrymandering!

For years, the GOP has seen declines in the popular vote. And instead of, you know, adjusting their policies to win back voters, in 2010 they instead turned to strategic and undemocratic gerrymandering – aggressively redrawing legislative district lines to give themselves an unfair edge.

Republican Gerrymandering outside of your own state affects you a lot, no matter where you live. For example, in 2018, North Carolina Republicans won 50.3% of the popular vote for House seats – but kept control of a disproportionate 10 out of 13 seats (76.9%) in the House of Representatives, stealing three Democratic seats. The state leadership draws the district lines for those seats, but we all feel national results.

The courts are slowly tackling some of this GOP manipulation, but not all of it. That’s why it’s vital we do everything we can to register every single Democratic voter in affected states – because electing more Democrats at the state level is our best way to ensure fair Congressional District lines.

Sign up to write letters to future Democratic voters in gerrymandered states, encouraging them to register to vote and sending the info they need to make it happen! You just need a few stamps and envelopes, and a printer…comfort snacks/beverages and writing buddies optional.

Some states like Washington and California generally vote broadly Democratic, while others are solidly red (for now…). However, seven red/purple states could be blue, where voters exist to defeat the GOP *if* we get them registered and committed to voting.

The seven target gerrymandered states are: Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin. Many of these states may be familiar to you already as historic ideological battlegrounds…while others like Texas and Georgia are signals of changing progressive times!

Writing letters to unregistered voters is one of the most effective AND convenient methods to building Democratic voting blocs…and the good folks of Vote Forward make it easy.

Write letters to unregistered voters in gerrymandered states most likely to vote Democratic, providing the information they need to register in their state. Help defeat Congressional AND state-level GOP oppressors in one step…all from the comfort of your own home!
