Write to voters

Writing letters and postcards provides a personal touch to voter outreach, and it’s a fun group activity. We’re working on a three-pronged strategy to keep Congress Blue in 2022 by electing Democrats across the ballot:

  1. We’re registering likely new Democratic voters (in partnership with Field Team 6) in flippable Congressional districts in Arizona, California, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Georgia, Nevada and Wisconsin. Voter registration campaigns target “the rising American electorate,” including underrepresented groups like Black communities in the Deep South and young voters. To expand the Democratic majority in the US Senate, we must flip seats in Florida, North Carolina and Wisconsin.
  2. We’re protecting vulnerable California, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania Democrats by informing voters of the legislative achievements of their representatives.
  3. We’re encouraging Democrats in swing states and districts to enroll in vote-by-mail, a proven method to increase voter turnout.
  4. We’re writing letters (with Vote Forward) to increase voter participation of historically underrepresented communities in the electorate in November.

Writing Letters

Write letters with Vote Forward and Swing Left Peninsula! In 2020 these groups worked together to send 460,000 letters to swing states; the impact was enormous. In non-Presidential years, voter turnout tactics will have even more effect. Swing Left Peninsula aims to send one million letters to states that are critical for protecting (and expanding) our House and Senate majorities.
