Help Increase Election Turnout: Write Letters to Voters with Vote Forward!

From the comfort of your home, YOU can help increase election turnout!  Multiple randomized trials have shown that voters who received a letter were significantly more likely to vote. Vote Forward is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization which has built tools to enable Americans, wherever they may be, to encourage fellow citizens to participate in our democracy.

With a Vote Forward account, you’ll gain access to your own volunteer dashboard. From the dashboard, you can adopt voters in Ohio or other states, download typed letter templates to which you’ll add a handwritten message, and then manage your progress by marking your letters “prepared” and “sent” on the mail date, October 17th, 2020. In order to send letters via Vote Forward, you will need a printer, envelopes, and stamps.
