Swing Blue Alliance reports Postcards and Letters Can Boost Voter Turnout and Registration!

While research is ongoing, current evidence shows that handwritten communications like postcarding and letter-writing can increase voter turnout and registration.

Turnout increases for postcard programs can approach 2%, occasionally higher. If this seems minimal, consider that in close elections, sending large numbers of cards may raise turnout to levels in the same range as vote margins. Postcards also impact older voters more than younger ones and seem to boost turnout more in primaries than in general elections.

Over 100,000,000 eligible voters DID NOT VOTE in the 2016 election. A frequently cited reason was ballot intimidation. As political campaigns center on specific candidates and measures, Blue Voter Guide shifts the focus to voters, and solves their number one problem - ballot confusion.

 

Go to Blue Voter Guide and enter your address, the voter can see all the candidates and measures on their ballot with progressive endorsers listed for each. Now you can make fast, smart, pro-democracy choices up and down ballot. With Blue Voter Guide driving up turnout, we can win elections at all levels.

Field Team 6 is a pro-Democratic Party get-out-the-vote group that seeks to register Democratic voters.  Field Team 6 has helped register 2.3 million Dems since 2019, the vast majority in swing states. Field Team 6 is a volunteer army on a mission: Register Democrats. Save the world.

To win in 2024, we will reach out to millions of unregistered likely Democrats using our one-of-a-kind database and every outreach method possible (phone and text, postcard, email and targeted ad, and in-person too), where new Democratic voters will make the most impact – in the most flippable states and districts.

If you are interested in participating in Postcarding, Phone Banks, Social Media
Storming, Textbooks, or In-Person Voter Drives... this is the website to find out how!

The Volunteer Blue group grew from the work of Together for 2020, which mobilized more than 10,000 volunteers working in critical states to elect Biden/Harris, take the Senate, and hold onto the House. In 2021, we became Together We Elect, reflecting our ongoing mission, expanding our alliances with voting-oriented organizations, and continuing to connect volunteers with meaningful, vetted, and impactful actions. We have become an important way for a variety of organizations to connect with each other, share ideas, and promote volunteer opportunities.

As Together We Elect, we work closely with groups such as Swing Left, Force Multiplier, the Union, Activate America, Field Team 6, as well as coordinated campaigns and candidates in swing districts and states.

Actions supported by Together We Elect include:

  • Texting

  • Phone calling

  • Postcard- and letter-writing

  • Fundraising

  • Amplifying the work of on-the-ground organizations in key states

Swing Left is building a lasting culture of grassroots participation in winning elections for the Left by making it as easy as possible for anyone to have maximum impact on the elections that determine the balance of power in our country.

In 2023, the Swing Left community helped flip the Wisconsin Supreme Court to a progressive majority, protect voting power and reproductive freedom in Ohio, hold the Virginia State Senate, and flip the Virginia House of Delegates. Together, we also began to lay the groundwork for winning a federal Democratic trifecta in 2024. Read more about how we won in 2023.
