AʻŪ VOICES MAILED 1,600 GET OUT THE VOTE messages in early October through Nāʻālehu Post Office. The effort across the country is coordinated by Vote Forward.
Kaʻū Voices sent out 200 postcards to inconsistent voters in North Carolina with a handwritten, nonpartisan message to encourage them to vote. They also sent 1,400 letters printed from the Vote Forward website to potential voters in swing states, also with a handwritten, nonpartisan message urging citizens to vote. Twenty-two Kaʻū Voices participants wrote the letters and postcards. These writers also provided envelopes and postage for the letters. Vote Forward provided stamps for the postcards.
Vote Forward attained its goal of preparing 1 million GOTV letters and upped its goal to 1.5 million.
*Note from Vote Forward:
Still have letters to mail?
No problem. It’s not too late to mail. After you’ve dropped them off in a blue mailbox or at the post office, be sure to mark them “sent” on your dashboard.
Ka’u Voices, an Indivisible group, waved signs for Biden-Harris in Ocean View, Hawai’i Oct. 16th, 2020.
