Everyone is crazy for postcards!
Sending postcards to voters in swing districts has become a popular way to support campaigns from afar. It's fun, easy, and you can do it right at home.
In 2017, Sister District volunteers wrote over 40,000 postcards to voters! Stay tuned for more opportunities to support 2017 and 2018 Sister Races, including special elections.
How it Works
We ask all our candidates if they are interested in doing a postcard drive with us. If they are, we work with directly the campaign to develop all the necessary information for our volunteers—a script or talking points, voter addresses, postcard design, goals and timeline for the drive, and so forth. Then, we deliver a package with specific directions and materials to our District Captains, who will help to coordinate postcarding efforts for their teams.
As with all our programs, we are committed to working directly with the campaigns to provide them with exactly what they need and want. You can rest assured that your hard work will be strategic and focused—not redundant, or worse, unintentionally detrimental.
In-KIND REPORTING FORMS
Whoever buys stamps or postcards needs to fill out an in-kind donation form so that we can notify the campaign and they can report it for compliance purposes. (Unlike Republicans, we’re not trying to hide our “dark money!”) Ask your District Captain for the postcard packet; the last page is a compliance form—please fill it out and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
(If you’ve made cash donations to a campaign—or example, via ActBlue—don’t worry—the reporting is already taken care of.)
