LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD! 
MAKE YOUR PLAN TO VOTE

TUESDAY, MARCH 17, 2020
DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY

FLORIDA IS A “CLOSED PRIMARY” STATE. You can’t vote in the Democratic Presidential Primary unless you register as a Democrat.

FEBRUARY 18, 2020 is the deadline:

  • to change your party affiliation to Democrat, if you wish to participate in the Democratic Presidential Primary; and
  • to register as a Florida voter for the March 17 election. (But if you are already registered in Florida, you can change your address after February 18.)

To register or update your registration, contact:
Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections
501 1st Ave. North 
St. Petersburg, FL 33701

Write Postcards To Voters Every Monday!

Pinellas County was the largest county in Florida to go for Trump in 2016. We believe that we can turn Pinellas BLUE in 2020. People who use Vote By Mail have significantly higher turnout than those who don’t use Vote By Mail. This is particularly true among younger voters. We have targeted 60,000 registered voters in the county who are not signed up for vote by mail. These voters don’t belong to a political party but there are indications that they are progressive. We want every one of these voters to get a personalized post card from another Pinellas voter urging them to sign up for vote by mail.

We have card parties every Monday at 6PM Allendale UMC. Many people get cards, instructions and addresses from us and prepare them at home.
Monday’s at 6:00 pm
Allendale United Methodist Church
Room 107/108
3803 Haines Rd N.
St. Petersburg, FL 33703

For more information contact Indivisible FL-13 member Ellen Mowbray at mowbrayellen@gmail.com.

We got 5,000 cards in the pipeline in our first month. Our group is up to 50 and growing.

Start Your Own Postcard Party!

Ginny Nelson and the Game Changers are postcarding heroes!  Having written 1100 postcards since the campaign began January 6th, they’ve just taken another 500 to write. They meet every other week in one another’s homes as well as write from home.

Be like Ginny, start your own regular postcard parties!


Adopt Your Block

Indivisible FL-13 and  Fired Up Pinellas are joining forces to recruit volunteers for our Adopt Your Block program to get out the vote in 2020. Come join us!

Data shows when people talk with their friends and neighbors about their voting plans and issues, they’re more likely to vote. We’re asking folks to volunteer to contact and get to know the Democratic and progressive leaning Independents on their street, neighborhood or building and help make sure they get to the polls or mail in their ballots
