Hand written postcards improve voter turnout

I'm doing 200 to voters in AZ. You pay postage--forever postcard stamps are available in rolls. They wouldn't get mailed until October 28th, so you have plenty of time to write them gradually

12. The DCCC

should send a super sized postcard to every registered voter in the country. No photos, no pleas for money, just a list of all the votes against average Americans by the GOP members of Congress. And comments on local and state GOP politicians who have disregarded the wishes and needs of their constituents.

A few years ago four women were running for positions on my local County Board of Supervisors, they combined their efforts in the form of a regulation size postcard stating their positions on local issues. Three of those four women won, KISS Keep It Simple Stipid=worked for IBM!

4. I got 200 from The Progressive Turnout Project as well.

They gave me Nevada addresses. I farmed out batches of 20 to five friends, and I'm about halfway through my batch of 100. I hope to finish soon so I can order more postcards.

9. I did this to NC and PA in

2020 but the org. I did it for wanted letters vs postcards, saying they were more effective. Donít know about that, but do know it was a lot more work.

Thinking Iíll do postcards next time!

10. Back in 2004, I wrote letters for Howard Dean to some folks in

Iowa ahead of the Iowa caucuses. For a year or two afterwards I had a nice penpal there who responded to one of those letters. Elderly guy without much family. Even talked to him on the phone.

But, he did not vote for Dean.

Spanish language postcards are also needed for Christy Smith (CA-25) and Gil Cisneros (CA-39).
Sign up to get addresses at this website: https://forms.gle/caQgAv7Q1Cgu1sFG9 and please either download Spanish postcards here https://drive.google.com/file/d/1HCLCggg9HEUS2VYXx0_oSrCLvf-Kp23u/view or ask to have them delivered.

Broward county florida is looking for spanish postcarding as well.
