For the health and safety of our community, we are no longer hosting events at the DVC headquarters. We will open a larger office later in the spring or summer, when it is safe to do so. Due to the shelter-in-place order, we are no longer offering postcard pickups. Please see our list of ways to volunteer from home.

Our calendar now features online meetings and events you can join from home! Click on any event name for details.

According to evidence-based research from the Analyst Institute–the Democrat’s gold-standard think tank on voter engagement techniques–the two most effective GOTV tactics are knocking on doors and sending hand-addressed GOTV letters.

We can get started NOW on preparing and stockpiling those highly effective GOTV letters to low-propensity Democratic voters in key states, the voters we need in order to win. In fact, we must get started now, or we will not be able to help finish the 2 million GOTV letters needed to get those voters to the polls! We’ll send these letters in October, allowing us to pivot to knocking on doors in key states in the final weeks.

The Vote Forward website already has nearly 2 million letters available for the ten most critical states. To succeed, we must double the number of letters we sent last year.That means Peninsula writers would need to increase from 9,000 to 18,000 letters per month. We realize this is quite a lofty goal, but we feel it’s important to let you know the upper limits we should reach for and to underscore the need for us to increase our already impressive numbers. Help us close in on this audacious goal. As Lin Manuel Miranda said in a brand-new Swing Left video — “If we’re waiting, we’re losing!” We’re not waiting.
