New Postcard Campaign!
Our first postcard campaign wrapped up with about 75,000 personalized cards being sent to Pinellas independent voters who were not registered to vote by mail. We just learned from the Board of Elections that over 10,000 Pinellas voters signed up for vote by mail in May with independent voters registering at nearly twice the rate as Republicans.
Our new campaign involves preparing cards for vote by mail Democrats who haven’t sent in their ballots two weeks after they received them. We are preparing and stamping the cards now and will put labels on them two weeks before election day. By doing this we hope to drive up voter participation among vote by mail Democrats.
We’d love for you to join us. If you want to learn more about the campaign please go to our website via this link:
