BOSTON, MA – Florida Vote By Mail Postcard Party
February 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
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.
Vote-by-Mail increases Democratic turnout dramatically. Compared to in-person voters, Democratic voters who use Vote by Mail are 25% more likely to vote.
Over 60,000 registered Democrats haven’t signed up to Vote by Mail. By making it easy to request Vote by Mail ballots, we can ensure more Democrats turn out to vote against Trump in 2020. Your postcards will boost turnout and help Florida go blue in 2020!
The cost to print and mail the postcards is approximately $0.50 per postcard and paid for by the event organizer, so pitching in $10-$15 to cover the cost of the postcards you will write and help with the cost to rent the space would be much appreciated. Regardless, please come and help, as this year’s elections are too important not to get involved! Thank you!
