The upcoming primary on June 2 is the first opportunity for Pennsylvanians to vote by mail (VBM). They must request a VBM ballot by May 26 for the primary, and they must get their ballots in by election day on June 2.
The big payoff?
Every VBM voter can automatically receive another ballot for November and for every year going forward.
What does that mean for you?
Every call you make that gets someone to VBM is an investment in Democratic wins for years to come.
Collaboration is key
Swing Left Greater Boston is partnering with Turn PA Blue and Red2Blue on the launch of a new wave of phone banking efforts in PA. The campaign has one aim: to increase VBM participation in PA, particularly among low-propensity voters — including low- income households and people of color — in the primary on June 2 and the general election on November 3.
Phone banks pave the way
To support this effort, Frances Brumley is building an integrated network of phone bank captains as Swing Left Greater Boston’s contribution to VBM in Pennsylvania. Frances has targets for quantity: number of calls, volunteers, captains, etc. At the same time, her focus is on quality: clear communication, easy-to-use tools, best practices, and a sense of community.
(Read more about Frances in the profile below and catch next week’s article for how she’ll be applying her philosophy of community building to the phone bank effort.)
