Letters: Last Round – Georgia Vote-by-Mail Letter-Writing! Pick up letters from Michelle in Cambridge, MA

December 9, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 pm EST

Help get our **last** absentee ballot request forms to voters in Georgia for the Senate runoff. Turnout is critical in these elections and because of COVID19 a lot of people don’t know how to go through this process or even that they need to. These packets make it much easier to vote. We’ll send them everything they need!
We have sent out over 470,000 absentee ballot requests to over 340,000 households. Help us reach 500,000 households!

This requires picking up **physical materials** ON DECEMBER 9th, but our letter writing will be in your own location.

You’ll be sending each voting household a packet that will have:
1. An absentee ballot request form.
2. An already-addressed envelope with a stamp already on it that they can just pop back in the mail to send the request.
3. Some instructions that will have room for you to write a personal message.

You’ll need to **pick them up** ON DECEMBER 9th and **send** them ASAP (by FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12th AT THE LATEST)! See some general instructions at the bottom and more details when you get your packet.

Sign up to get the pickup location for your 25 packets. Remember to get 50 first-class stamps! (about $28) If you don’t get an email with your RSVP, get more information by following the instructions in [this document](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kCVbAJ8BSO5InlZcz-CDCbs5gblUp8KTs3ATC457_W4/edit#heading=h.2k28dpjjltms) to check “My Volunteer Schedule”.
