Postcards

We can’t wait to get back to our wonderful postcard parties, but in the meantime we have two types of projects you can work on right now: writing for candidates with EBAA, and writing for Reclaim Our Vote to restore voting rights to marginalized citizens.

Write postcards with EBAA 

Write postcards to turn out the vote for candidates in MI, NC, AZ, and CA.

Write postcards for Reclaim Our Vote (ROV) 

Help restore voting rights to millions of Americans with ROV postcards. We want to put 16 million constituents back on the voting rolls. 

Non-partisan ROV postcards include a detailed URL+phone number that coordinates with the address. This information, which is only part of your message, can be printed on a sticky label, printed on paper and pasted, or handwritten. (If you print the information by hand, that’s fine!)

Please note: ROV has requested that we not use US flag images for these cards.

A word about Voter Suppression*

  • 36 states require identification at the polls, which eliminates 21 million US citizens as voters.

  • 7 states have strict photo ID laws, estimated by US GAO to reduce voter turnout by 2-3 percentage points - enough to tip many elections.

  • 21 million U.S. citizens do not have government-issued photo IDs.

  • In the past five years, four states have engaged in illegal purges, and another four states have implemented unlawful purge rules.

  • 70% of Georgia voters purged in 2018 were Black.

*Voter Suppression statistics from the ACLU and the Brennan Center

This is a great project and we need all the help we can get!
