November 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
Harvey Wheeler Community Center, 1276 Main St
Concord, MA 01742 United States

In Florida, vital elections are decided by razor-thin margins. In 2018, incumbent Democratic Senator Bill Nelson lost his reelection bid, an election of national significance, by only 10,000 votes with over eight million votes cast. Democratic voters in Florida turn out at a lower rate than their Republican counterparts; if Democrats turned out at the same rate as Republicans, Hillary Clinton would have beaten Donald Trump in 2016 by 220,000 votes.

MA United States + Google Map

We are focused on Wisconsin, one of the states expected to swing the 2020 presidential election. In 2016, lower voter turnout among Democrats in Wisconsin played a major role in Trump’s win over Clinton by a razor-thin margin of 0.77%. We can keep that from happening again, but we need your help! Letter-writing campaigns can change the outcome of elections by encouraging Democratic voter registration, especially for under-represented groups. Letter writing is cathartic, easy, fun and most importantly effective. Join…
