Yesterday I learned about VOTE FORWARD‘s nonpartisan, letter writing campaign to get disengaged voters to vote this November. The purpose is to encourage citizens who feel their voices are not being heard- to give voting a second chance and increase voter turnout in this year’s very important election.
As volunteers, we will be writing to individual voters explaining: “Why I always vote.” You will be given a template letter with spaces for your personal handwriting/printing. You will be assigned individual names and addresses for voters in a variety of key states. You may write as many letters as you like. Once you have completed these letters hold on to them until you receive an email that it’s OK to send them. “The Big Send” is the name for this effort. VOTE FORWARD has set the goal for 10,000,000 letters! They have already reached over 6 million!
And as an added bonus, the cast of Hamilton is hosting “The Big Send’s Big Week Kickoff” next Monday. Sign up and join the fun to help support Democracy. https://votefwd.org/
Please spread the word. Tell all your friends about “The Big Send.”
