Starting now, please consider making time in your life for the occasional weekly friend get-together wine-and-postcard party! Unlike almost any other volunteer activity, you can write postcards from your own house (or local coffee shop), while chatting with friends! Postcards are a great way to reach out to voters, and they can really help. Volunteers write and draw postcards to voters in an effort to increase Democratic participation. Many people include their children.
There are two main organizations that support sending postcards to voters
Postcards to Voters
Postcards to Voters has over 61,000 volunteers in all states who have written over 4 million postcards in over 170 elections, urging people to vote, and to vote for Democratic candidates. There are three ways to join.
- Click here,
- OR Send an email to join@TonyTheDemocrat.org,
- or text HELLO to ABBY The Address Bot at 1-484-ASK-ABBY (which is 1-484-275-2229).
Once you’re signed up, you can get some empty postcards, addresses, and start making postcards! It’s really easy to join up and start helping. Here’s a page that answers all questions.
Postcards to Voters helps you join with others in a campaign. You’re invited to a conference call at the beginning of a campaign, and a picture afterwards. They have podcasts and a lot of resources. Check them out!
Postcards for America
Postcards for America works to influence policy by sending personal messages to elected officials at all levels. Postcards4USA sends you calls to action every week, telling you where your postcards can make a difference. They have both national and state groups. Here’s a link to their Facebook page. You can follow them on Twitter at @postcards4USA
Writing postcards is great, because you can do it at home every day, but you can also schedule a weekly party with your friends!
