2022 is a significant year for elections in PA. Voters will select a new U.S. Senator and Governor, State House candidates that are in newly competitive races due to redistricting, and decide the outcomes of key congressional races. Swing Blue Alliance is working with the Democratic party on letter-writing and volunteer recruiting in PA.
Participate in a well-tested project 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.
Swing Blue Alliance makes it convenient for anyone to host a postcard or letter-writing distribution, no matter where you are with clear, easy -to-understand hosting instructions, an e-store that ships materials directly to you, and help promoting your distribution event. To get started, connect with the host team.
Recruit Volunteers Where it Matters Most
Recruiting volunteers is one of the most effective ways you can help to build a strong Democratic infrastructure in Pennsylvania.
We are currently recruiting volunteers who live in Bucks County, PA. Bucks is Pennsylvania’s “swingiest” county, and experts say that it will remain so for years to come. Join our calling team and talk to friendly Bucks County Democrats who are often interested in volunteering. Many of them have volunteered in the past and are pleased to receive our call.
We are also recruiting volunteers for the Matt Cartwright (PA-08) congressional campaign in Northeastern PA and the Susan Wild (PA-07) campaign in Lehigh Valley.
