Vote Forward (14 March 2022)
Open: NOW Deadline: Rolling, depending on election date
Vote Forward is the most popular get-out-the-vote activity in Daily Kos history.
Our community first got involved writing letters to infrequent, but lean Democratic, voters in 2018. In October of that year, our community wrote 500,000 letters to help Democrats take back Congress. In 2020 and early 2021 when we won the White House and the Georgia Senate runoffs, Daily Kos activists stepped up and wrote millions of letters to voters in battleground states.
It can feel stressful following the news. With Vote Forward, you can spend a few hours of your time every week or every month writing to voters who we know will be crucial in November. You can write these letters on your own time, at your own pace, from the comfort of your home, and stockpile them for a delivery date close to the election. Best of all, writing these letters is statistically proven to increase voter turnout.
We are starting by writing to reach infrequent, but lean Democrats, voters in the crucial battleground states of Georgia and Arizona, both of which have elections for U.S. Senate that could determine which party controls the chamber.
