The runoff elections in Georgia are going to decide control of the US Senate. The runoff elections will be close, as evidenced by both the general election — Joe Biden won Georgia by about 12,000 votes out of about 5 million votes cast — and recent polling. Turnout of Democratic supporters will be key for a victory of both Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. Writing postcards (or letters) to voters is a proven way to increase turnout. Additionally, it is easy, safe and can be done from anywhere.
There are several organizations writing postcards to prospective voters in Georgia. Whether you have written before or a new to this — you will get detailed guidelines and instructions about how and what to write. Here are four organizations that might be a fit for you:
Vote Forward is currently writing it’s third and final wave for the Georgia runoff elections. The send date for this campaign is the coming Monday, December 7, so letters should be written this weekend. There are still around 175,000 addresses to adopt, so support is needed quite urgent.
