Virtual Letter Writing Parties for the Georgia Runoff
November 12 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm PST
An event every week that begins at 2:30 pm on Saturday, repeating until November 26, 2022
Control of both houses of Congress is still undetermined, thanks in no small part to your efforts to turn out the vote in key states and districts with Vote Forward letters. Once again, control of the Senate may hinge on the outcome of the runoff election in Georgia. The election is on December 6. I won’t elaborate on the stakes. You all know that this is crucial, and I know I can count on all of you to do your part.
Vote Forward is launching its letter-writing campaign for the Georgia Runoff on November 10. This is a great virtual event you can do from the comfort of home!

Join me for a letter-writing party, where we’ll be writing letters using this award-winning, proven tactic to reach potential voters in the December 6 Georgia Senate runoff. Writing Vote Forward letters is the rare form of activism that you can be confident will accomplish your goal. Starting with its first test campaign in 2017, Vote Forward has carefully studied the impact of all of its campaigns and used numerous small “laboratory” campaigns to test the efficacy of many different approaches empirically. The result is an approach that is guaranteed to have a strong impact on Democratic turnout. The additional turnout generated by Vote Forward letters in the 2020 election was more than enough to determine the result in the presidential contest. You can review the results here: https://votefwd.org/impact2020. In a runoff election where baseline turnout is much lower, the effect will be even greater (again, based on clear empirical evidence from several past elections). That’s why Swing Left has partnered with Vote Forward as the only form of written voter communication (Swing Left does not support ANY postcard campaign). We want to direct our volunteers into activism that will translate their efforts into a maximum of real political change.
RSVP here, and we’ll let you know how to join this party. Invite your friends, too, and let them know that Swing Left is pioneering an innovative program, using letters to help volunteers like us turn out voters through our letter-writing affiliate, Vote Forward.
Never written letters before? Hop on to votefwd.org/swingleft and make an account; download twenty letters, and we’ll show you how to write them at our party!
Think about it: if you help get a voter to the polls is an important step towards creating a more inclusive and equitable government and society. Looking forward to seeing you!
