Commit to Flip Blue and Swing Left Voter Outreach

Calling 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- to two-line message, then sign the letter and address the envelop. 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 these 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 targets 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.

The letter writing will take place at the Gateway Community Center in Rossmoor, on Wednesdays form 4 to 6 pm, starting on April 17.  Go to our EVENTS page, and you can RSVP for the dates that work for you!
