    Important elections DO happen in the off years!

    Between now and November 2019 we will be concentrating on the November 5 2019 election of the Virginia state legislature. Remember all those seats we flipped in 2017 in Virginia?  We just need two more to turn the state blue!  So mark your calendars and come help!

    We are also doing calling with the NAACP, into states that have been aggressively removing infrequent voters from the voter rolls, to alert folks to check their registration and re-register.

    We will train you and make sure you are comfortable calling or texting. 

    Reminder: Bring your phone, your charger, your earbuds (for your comfort) AND your laptop or tablet (let me know if you want to borrow one), and your good cheer and positive energy to #Resist!

    And bring a friend, too!!!!

    Voter Outreach in Walnut Creek, CA

    Commit to Flip Blue and Swing Left Voter Outreach

    LetterWritingCampaign_graphic_(1).jpgCalling all Commit to Flip Blue activists in the Walnut Creek area who are ready to restore Democracy in 2020, starting with the special election in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District!


    We are starting up a new letter-writing program working with Swing Left. If we are to overcome gerrymandering and voter suppression, we need to target potential voters in Swing states, such as those who were registered but have since moved and have not yet re-registered to vote.


    Swing Left has a letter writing campaign to urge these potential voters to vote or to register. If you wrote postcards you CAN do this; in fact, it is easier. You will personalize preprinted letters with the voter’s name and a one- or two-line message, then sign the letter and address the envelope. We will need your stamps! You can come and write letters for one hour or more, however long you would like.


    Our first campaign will be to write GOTV letters for the Special Election in the North Carolina 9th Congressional District. Increasing voter turn out in North Carolina is one of Commit to Flip Blue’s target states for 2020. We start now. Later we will switch to writing to urge people to register and include voter registration forms in the letters. These campaigns are reputed to increase eventual voter turnout by 3%. That could be the margin of victory.

    Voter Outreach in Walnut Creek, CA

    Phone Bank to Notify Disenfranchised Voters

    We have partnered with the NAACP to encourage minorities and people of color to re-register to vote. Most do not realize they have been taken off the rolls. Our calls are the first step in letting them know. We will be calling Colorado first, one of our designated states. The NAACP has found that 80% of households still live at the address they registered originally. They just don't use their land line anymore. The NAACP will be going door to door to those addresses we identify as disconnected or wrong numbers to urge them to re-register to vote. Please join us!
