Today’s Action: Keep Virginia Blue! Letter-writing has begun again!

If you’ve been with us since 2019, you may have been part of the historic grassroots effort to successfully flip Virginia’s state legislature blue for the first time in a generation. It was a monumental victory, and Democrats immediately got to work rolling out legislation on gun safety, and women’s and LGBTQ rights.

Perhaps the biggest boon has been watching Virginia go from having the 2nd most restrictive voter ID laws in the nation to just recently being the first Southern state to pass a Voting Rights Act.

Maintaining Democratic control of Virginia’s state legislature has national consequences, from the redistricting of House of Representatives seats to gun safety laws (since guns can travel across state lines). That’s why we must keep Virginia blue in the 2021 elections and beyond by turning one-time voters into life-time voters.

Sign up to send letters with Vote Forward to Democratic-leaning voters in Virginia who participated for the first time in 2020 (or the first time in a long time). The mail deadline is April 15th!

Your letters will thank new voters, celebrating their participation in the historic 2020 election. And, you’ll be encouraging them to continue the trend of civic participation by turning it into a regular commitment.

Vote Forward’s letters are easy and simple to complete. They provide you with the names, addresses, and a template specific to that voter. You fill in your personal encouragement, address an envelope and add a stamp, and mail away!

Let’s turn the Blue Wave into something permanent.

Send letters to first-time Democratic-leaning voters in Virginia (mail by April 15th!), thanking them for their participation in 2020, and encouraging them to vote in the 2021 state and local elections!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to shut down the Trump oil refinery that literally makes the sky rain oil, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
