Postcards to Philly Voters: 48,000 and Counting!
Happy Monday, Activists!
We hope you had a good weekend. Today we want to talk about our newest postcard project. It's a special card we created to tell voters about the risk of the Supreme Court and Republicans removing protections for abortion rights under Roe v. Wade and through legislation. And it reminds them of our power to fight back with our vote. We created this postcard to speak to that point and remind Philadelphia voters of what is on the line this year. Help Philly Voters See The Urgency Of Voting In This Moment You've heard us say it before – many voters do not think about or realize how often we have elections. They vote in Presidential elections but not much more. So we need to remind them about the critically important elections this year – our open U.S. Senate seat and our Governor seat. We are writing to Philly voters (non-Republicans) who don’t normally vote in midterm elections, to persuade them to change their habit and vote this year. We call these voters “High Potential” voters – they are already voters; they just need to do it more often! So are you in? Research shows that multiple touches to voters increases our chances of success, and that’s our plan. The more we write to them, the better the turnout! We have targeted about 90,000 Philadelphia voters in this “High Potential” category. So far this year you have already committed to write to about 48,000 voters and counting! That's awesome, but we need more of you to get involved to reach our goal and expand turnout. Get Some Anxiety Relief! Think of it this way – you can relieve your anxiety about the state of our democracy by writing our postcards, knowing you are making a difference for the midterm elections. The stakes have never been higher! We'll be writing postcards until the November election so get on board now! Summer is a great time to write to our voters.
Here’s how it works:
We recommend you order enough cards to write over the next two months. We’ll hand deliver or ship the packet of postcards to you. We’ll email you all the instructions, addresses, and the script. Please order your postcards in multiples of 50. If you prefer to write our "Bicycle Cards" that have a broader message about why we need to vote this November, no problem! We are still offering those as well, so just let us know. Order them here. We ask that you donate $7.00 per set of 50 postcards to cover our costs. But don’t let the donation stop you from ordering the postcards. On the other hand, if you can, please consider chipping in a little extra to cover the cost for those who cannot.
Here are the Three Separate Action Steps to sign up – 1. Email us at one of the links above for whichever postcards you want and tell us how many postcards you will write, and give us your delivery address. 2. Donate $7.00 per set of 50 postcards at this link. (Plus an extra $5.00 if we are shipping to you.) 3. Purchase your 40-cent postcard stamps online at this link or at your local post office. Here’s how you’ll receive your postcard packets – If you are in the Philadelphia area, we will hand deliver the postcard packets or you can pick them up.
If you are outside the Philadelphia area, we will ship the packet to you. Please add $5.00 to your donation for shipping costs.
