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

At best, about 60% of eligible Americans turn out to vote during presidential election years. With one of the most divisive presidents in history, this year’s turnout is predicted to be higher…on both sides.

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 all 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. Start in February and make a goal to add 40+ letters to your pile each month!

There are millions of registered Democratic voters in swing states to reach between now and November, 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 Voting 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…but we don’t necessarily have them in the right places yet. Let’s change that.

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 over 350 voters this November!
