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

Oust Donald Trump. Flip the Senate. Preserve and gain House seats. Elect progressives at every level of government and overturn gerrymandering and voter suppression. We’ve got big goals for this November and they are ALL within our grasp.

But with the pandemic making in-person canvassing and campaign events risky (at least, according to our side…and science…), and devastating our state budgets for elections (with no help yet from the obstructionist Senate Republicans), we’ve got to remember this victory is only achievable if every single one of us puts in the extra effort.

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.

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!

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.

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 – not just for the presidential election, but for key Senate-flipping races as well.

Slow-but-steady wins the race. Writing letters and stockpiling them over the next four months is a safe way to make personal contact with other voters.

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. Commit to writing 40 letters a month!
