NORTH EASTON, MA – Postcards to Pass Freedom to Vote Act and Protect Our Democracy

November 1 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT

The Freedom to Vote Act will protect our freedom to vote by ensuring that Americans can register to vote, cast a ballot, and have that ballot counted fairly. This is critical to preserving democracy, but we are going to have to push it through the Senate. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) is looking for 10 Republicans to support the Act, but we are asking Democratic Senators to publicly advocate that the filibuster be bypassed so that this legislation be passed. We are sending these postcards to constituents of Senator Coons, DE, who is a confidante of President Biden and someone who has been on the fence about carving out the filibuster to get voting rights legislation done. We are asking those voters to contact their senator, thank him for supporting the FTVA and ask him to support elimination of or carving out of the filibuster.

Write postcards developed with Common Cause. We are asking constituents of moderate Senators to thank them for their support for the Freedom to Vote Act and asking them to help circumvent the filibuster to pass this critical legislation.

Postcards will be easy to fill out: they only require a short, handwritten message and placement of an address label and stamp on the card.
