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

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!

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.

These campaigns are effective, and they’re a great way to feel productive and useful.

Keep writing!

2020 but the org. I did it for wanted letters vs postcards, saying they were more effective. Don’t know about that, but do know it was a lot more work.

Thinking I’ll do postcards next time!

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.
