Swampscott, MA Vote by Mail Registration Letters to Florida Voters

January 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

This event’s address is private. Sign up for more details.

Join us January 29th from 7-9 PM in Swampscott to write postcards asking registered Democrats in the key swing area of Sarasota County, FL, to sign up to vote by mail.

In a controlled trial of about 1,250 postcards, the Sarasota County Democrats found that ten times more people requested vote by mail than before or after the postcard effort. This raised their response rate to 3 in 100 – and as we’ve seen, 3% is enough to swing today’s close races.

Another big bonus: Research shows that voters who receive their ballots by mail vote are much more likely to actually vote.

As with our other efforts, we will be addressing the postcards and writing a short note urging them to request the Vote by Mail option. Complete with a stamp each postcard we send costs 50 cents, so if you can pitch in $10 for the 20 or so postcards you’ll likely write that would be wonderful. If not, please come anyway!

And as always, please feel free to bring a friend or family member and thanks for all you do.
