We have a terrific effort going in North Carolina to get out the women's vote. It involves hand writing a letter to targeted women voters--the ones who are infrequent or new voters. We are urging them to vote and, of course, vote with us on November 6. We include all the early voting information, candidate info and we give them a flip card to help them through the judiciary races as well as the straight ticket which because of redistricting is confusing. The card includes all the early voting times and places and we add, depending on the precinct, the November 6 voting place. To quote from Durham Women Votes:
In 2008, women helped turn NC blue by writing letters to infrequent women voters in Durham. We turned out 61% of our 21,180 letter recipients which translates to 12,919 votes. President Obama beat Senator McCain by 14, 692 votes in North Carolina.
This is an effective tactic. We can use those of you who come from "safe" states to help us write these women. As I have said to my voters--the choice could not be more stark. Those of you with time and energy go to this site http://www.democraticwomenofnc.org/ and register to write. We can keep NC blue!
UPDATEI am reposting this because we need letter-writers from out-of-state and hopefully there are some of you who can help keep NC blue. Any questions about this can be directed to me.
