Write letters to voters with Indivisible Eastside and VoteForward!
Dates: Every other Tuesday from 7-8 PM from April 28 – October 27
We are hosting a recurring virtual letter writing party to write personal notes and send pre-messaged letters to 10 million low-propensity voters in key states that have elections that will influence the Senate, the Presidency, and gerrymandering. This effort is part of The Big Send – a 9 organization effort (including Indivisible) to Get Out The Vote.
In multiple randomized trials, voters who received a letter were significantly more likely to vote. Our daily lives have changed with physical distancing, and our Get Out the Vote efforts need to follow suit!
Want to join the effort? Here’s what you need:
1️⃣ Sign up at https://votefwd.org/ — you will obtain your voter addresses and record your work on this site.
2️⃣ Make sure you have a working printer and paper, as you will print the letters from home.
3️⃣ Gather your supplies:
