Are you someone who is worried about Republicans taking the House and Senate as traditionally happens in the midterms? Are you concerned about Republicans somehow manipulating elections they lose into wins both locally and nationally? Taking away more rights every day? So am I.
Democrats, Independents and thinking/caring Republicans must vote just for Democrats this year or we risk losing our democracy and all the rights that we once thought we had. It’s that important.
How you can help
Obviously, be sure you are registered to vote and vote Democratic on all races that you’re entitled to vote on - at least in 2022 and 2024.
Get others around you to do the same.
If you’ve got the money, donate to the candidates especially those in states that are close for both Senate and House.
Sign up to write to voters with PostcardstoVoters.org. I’ve been doing it for a couple of years now and I believe it’s really effective. You have to provide your own postcards and stamps. They’ll provide the message and addresses.
If you need help with Postcards to Voters, I'd be happy to do so.
I’ve already designed and ordered thousands of cards that are ready to go. I’d be happy to give some to you. Or you can make your own.
If you can’t afford to buy stamps, let me know and I will give you a batch to start
If you’re not someone who is comfortable online, you can work off my account as several people already are. They let me know when they have some time, and I text them the message to write and 10 addresses. They write them and mail them within three days
I’m currently averaging 10 postcards a day but I’m planning to increase that because the need is so dire to reach out to voters who may not have registered or who might not have bothered to think about voting.
The worst feeling right now is one of helplessness and with this, you have a chance to make an actual difference. It’s a chance to channel the frustration that many of us feel.
Of course there are other ways to help like working with a campaign, knocking on doors, making phone calls. Do whatever you can because we need every single person if we’re going to stop what’s happening, stop our rights being taken away from us one at a time.
If you don’t have the time to write but would like to help me in this journey, feel free to send me some postcard stamps that I can use or give out to others. Message me and I'll send you my address.
Tell everyone you know who might be willing to do this. Let’s get this done at a volume so big that they’ll no longer be able to say that the midterms go to the party that’s not in power.
You can help and it's easy....and essential
