Vote Forward is the most popular GOTV activity at Daily Kos

Vote Forward has an ambitious goal of sending 10 million letters in October to Democratic-leaning voters in the swing states. You can write these on your own time, in the privacy of your home.

You just say how many voters you are willing to adopt, print out the letters, write them and then keep them in a safe place. In October, you drop them in the mailbox with the Big Send.
