We need postcard writers.  Please email [email protected] to help.  We all have many commitments and time is limited, but there is still work that we can do.  Writing postcards can be done from the comfort of your home with great flexibility.  It’s easy to fit into your life and is more powerful than you may think.

As Tony the Democrat from Postcards to Voters said in a 2018 New York Times article, “In the postcard, you know you are creating something that stands a good chance of being held, or being put on a bulletin board or a fridge.”  When you write postcards for a candidate, you’re helping them in the last few weeks of the campaign, months in advance! Typically, we wrap up postcards by the end of August/September so postcards can be labeled, stamped, and mailed, to align with when ballots go out. The more localized the race, the smaller the margin for victory. So every additional contact to a potential voter, even an infrequent voter, makes a huge difference!

If we’ve piqued your interest in getting engaged through writing postcards or re-engaging with writing, reach out to [email protected] and we will connect you with current local postcarding opportunities.
