    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!

    Spanish for Activists

    Would you like to speak with voters in Spanish? Bienvenidos a Español para Activistas. Come join us in learning basic Spanish phrases that will help you when calling voters, canvassing door to door, or registering voters who prefer speaking in Spanish. This is a beginner level course for volunteers with no Spanish or some Spanish learned some time ago. We hope you can join this course offering, but if you cannot, it is likely that there will be other offerings in the future.

    Please RSVP and also let us know if you are bringing a friend or two to gain this valuable skill.

    LOCATION: Downtown Oakland - exact location TBD shortly

    TRANSPORTATION: 19th Street BART is one block away.

    PARKING: 2-hour street parking on Broadway and on Telegraph Avenue; only 1-hour parking near 19th and Franklin or Webster. Parking garages nearby charge about $11 for 2 hours.

    Plan to arrive 15 minutes early for parking, walking a very short distance to the building, and check-in.
