Click to volunteer with Vote Forward, writing thank you letters to first-time voters in Georgia and Virginia for casting their ballots last year and asking them to cast ballots in elections this year. Virginia has a governor’s race and Atlanta has a mayor’s race.
Because of an enormous turnout of first-time Democratic voters within the final election (particularly youth and other people of coloration), Joe Biden was elected president and the U.S. Senate is now in Democratic palms. We couldn’t have handed the historic COVID-19 reduction measure with out these voters.
Republicans are scared, which is why they’re pushing 250 voter suppression legal guidelines on the state stage—and doing all they will to cease Congress from passing complete voting rights laws. Now, greater than ever, we have to urge voters to maintain casting their ballots.
Vote Ahead is an progressive program the place volunteers write heartfelt, customized letters to irregular, Democratic-leaning voters in swing states who want that further “nudge” to solid a poll. You volunteer by yourself time, write the letters, after which mail them on a ship date.
Every day Kos performed an important function in 2018, the 2020 presidential election and the 2021 Georgia runoff to the success of this program. It’s actually the preferred get-out-the-vote exercise our neighborhood has ever been concerned in. Now in an off-year, Vote Ahead is doing experiments like this to be extra profitable.
Virginia and Georgia are each traditionally crimson states which have trended blue in recent times, because of rising voter participation from youth and other people of coloration. And each states have native “off-year” elections in 2021, which is why Vote Ahead is concentrating on them. We’d like you to thank these first-time voters for casting their ballots, and urge them to please do it once more.
