Today’s Action: Last chance to send Vote Forward letters to swing states!

Early voting is happening! And we’re seeing record numbers of registrants and turnout in various pockets across the country – Americans are super engaged in this election.

But though Biden is generally ahead in the polls, we can’t risk leaving any stone unturned (reminder that Clinton was also polling well in 2016). Especially with the creative new ways in which Republicans are engaging in wild voter suppression (including fake ballot boxes in California, limiting ballot boxes to one-per-county in Texas, and more) on top of Trump’s war against facts.

We need to reach every Democrat and encourage them to push past suppression, apathy, and/or personal barriers to cast their vote…to oust Trump, flip the Senate, hold the House, and overturn the GOP-majority state legislative houses that create these voter rights barriers.

Help Vote Forward reach 15 million Get Out The Vote hand-written letters to Democratic-leaning voters in swing states by the mail date: THIS SATURDAY, October 17. They are only one million away from their goal – adopt 20 voters today!

Ask yourself: what are you fighting for this November? Fighting white supremacy and xenophobia? Ending voter suppression? Healthcare and protecting pre-existing conditions? Climate change policy? Beating the pandemic? Humane immigration procedures? Women’s rights and abortion access? Ending corporate-centered politics? All of the above?

Vote Forward letters ask you to share why you’re voting this year. Your passion and experiences could be the decisive factor, the personal touch that pushes a non-voter to their polling location or to fill out their absentee ballot…and helps secure a sweeping Blue victory.

Adopt 20 swing state voters to send hand-written Get Out The Vote letters! Vote Forward makes it easy with a template and address list…but act fast, because the mail date is THIS SATURDAY, October 17!
