Special Election Postcards
We need you to participate!

There will be a special election on September 14th to determine whether Governor Gavin Newsom should be recalled. Democrats/Progressives are notoriously bad about showing up and voting in special elections.

Ballots are being mailed out starting Monday, August 16th.
Fill out and
return your ballot as soon as possible.

If we want to ensure that the recall effort fails, we MUST work hard to ensure Democrats/Progressives vote. To help with this, we will be organizing a postcard writing effort.

To help you decide here are some details.

  • We will provide:

* preprinted address labels

* postcards with plenty of room for personal handwritten messages

  • You will provide:

* postage

* purchase and affix POSTAGE to each postcard

* return completed postcards to the location where you picked them up

  • Postcards will be available for pickup on or before Tuesday, July 20th.

  • Target date to pick up completed postcards is Tuesday, August 10th.
