October 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT
Jeff Whitfield for HD92:
Join us for an entertaining night of letter writing to get out the vote in Texas with HD-92 candidate Jeff Whitfield and a musical performance from an artist to be announced!
Sponsored by Swing Left Austin, the Texas Democratic Party and Blue Action Democrats
BEFORE THE EVENT
1) Register to write letters through the Vote Forward platform. (It can take several days to get approved, so make sure you do this in advance!) 👉🏽votefwd.org/swingleft
2) Once you’re approved to send letters, request to adopt voters under their 2 Texas-targeted campaigns (we recommend selecting 20 voters for the length of our event). 👉🏽votefwd.org/district/TXGOTV2020A 👉🏽votefwd.org/district/TXGOTV2020B
3) Print the letter templates out, and make sure you have enough envelopes and stamps ahead of the event.
4) We’ll discuss how to personalize the messages to voters during our Virtual Letter Writing Party for TX Voter Turnout!
Vote Forward and Swing Left volunteers send heartfelt handwritten letters to unregistered and low-propensity voters encouraging them to participate in our democracy. The letters have been shown to significantly boost voter turnout.
AFTER THE EVENT
Store the letters in a safe place until it’s time to mail them out in mid-October!
