CAMBRIDGE, MA – Increase Democratic Turnout in PA with Vote by Mail

August 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Cambridge Letter Team is a growing group of volunteers from the Boston Metro area that have sent over 50,000 postcards/letters over the last year. Join us for this well-tested project in partnership with Swing Blue Alliance, using proven methods to increase Democratic turnout in the critical state of Pennsylvania.

In the 2022 General Election Democratic voters in Pennsylvania will have an outsized impact at the federal and state level. At the federal level PA voters will be voting on an open U.S. Senate seat. At the state level, both the PA State Senate and PA State House are currently controlled by Republicans. The preservation of abortion rights in Pennsylvania will likely depend on Democrats gaining control of one branch of the state legislature and retaining control of the governor’s seat.

Since 2019, Swing Blue Alliance has worked with Democratic organizations in swing states to increase turnout by encouraging Democratic voters to vote by mail. In prior PA elections, Swing Blue has conducted controlled studies which have shown that sending a mail ballot application to targeted voters who have not already requested their ballot significantly increases voter turnout. This year Swing Blue has expanded upon this proven program and has partnered with additional counties in PA.

DETAILS: Each packet of materials contains 25 pre-printed letters, 25 stamps, absentee ballot request forms, pre-addressed envelopes (yay!), and an in-kind contribution form you complete for the PA Dems. Just write a short handwritten message, assemble, and mail! The materials cost is $27 per kit (check or Venmo) with contactless pickup in North Cambridge.
