Make the Most of the Next 85 Days!
Indivisible Mass Coalition (IMC) is sponsoring several mega-effective events in a Weekend of Action -- August 13-14 -- to kick off the last 85 days leading up to the November elections.
Swing Blue Alliance is honored that IMC included two of our own events as part of the WOA. See the articles below about canvassing in NH and sending vote-by-mail applications to PA. Also check out these otherIMC Weekend of Action events.
Canvass in Nashua, NH
Join Win Blue NH in Nashua. You'll be canvassing to promote wins for Senator Maggie Hassan, Representative Annie Kuster, and down-ballot candidates.
Connect with voters to clean up the voter rolls and move the needle Blue. You can knock, chat, observe, or even just drive … so try it out!
Get on the phone and pitch in toward the same goals as canvassers (see previous article) … in just two hours! Here’s your chance to connect with NH voters and help national and down-ballot candidates win!
If you're worried about the Pennsylvania midterms, check outthis video of the July 28 PA Letter-Writing Kickoff. Pennsylvania activists and SBA leaders shared inside info, and it quickly became clear how well-researched and effective the new PA letter-writing campaign is.
We are working directly with Democratic county officials, providing the personnel and funds not available to them locally.
As an organizer, you can enable volunteers to fulfill SBA's commitment to those local groups, sending 174K letters to PA Dems. Each volunteer packet contains background info, along with vote-by-mail (VBM) applications and pre-addressed envelopes to send to voters.
As part of the Indivisible MA Coalition Weekend of Action, Swing Blue Alliance will deliver letter-writing packets right to your door. If you live within 50 miles of Framingham, you can sign up by August 7 to get this door-to-door service.
The letters you send will contain your note plus mail-in ballot applications and envelopes. It will be easy for PA voters to register to vote by mail. Just as easy as signing up to receive these packets.
We are working with the PA County Democratic organizations and are following procedures that they've proven do work. So, you know your efforts are going to make a difference.
Sign up by August 7 to get free delivery of letter-writing packets to your home. (Of course, you can sign up later and pick up the packets yourself!)
Many of these phonebanks occur multiple times a day and days of the week, so there should be one that fits into your calendar!
