First, thanks to our heroic post carding hosts and volunteers. In just over a month you sent 18,000 postcards to Pennsylvanians encouraging them to vote by mail and driving name recognition of the candidates who can flip the Pennsylvania legislature blue.
And it’s working: Vote by mail numbers are way up in Pennsylvania, with two thirds of them Democrats!
An added benefit: Once voters receive their VBM ballots, they may request an application to receive VBM ballots for all elections automatically through the end of the year; they’ll also get annual renewal forms so they can continue to receive VBM ballots every year.
The next step: Phone calls to make sure those voters return their ballots before the June 2 primary.
Before you say “I don’t do phone banks”…
These calls are easy: We’re calling likely Democratic voters, reminding them to do what they would probably do anyway (vote) and reminding them of vote-by-mail deadlines. Phone bankers doing these calls say the responses are unusually friendly and rewarding. And we provide training.
