Tips for writing postcards or letters:

Please write legibly and avoid using cursive script

​Do not sign your last name

​Friendly reminder even though your labels may have a name, do not use the names on the labels. Use instead “Our Friends at”, “Our Neighbors at”, “Essential Voters”, “VIP Voters”, etc. That way if there is a move by the family, your postcards or letters will still be delivered.

​Feel free to make your postcards colorful!

When you purchase stamps for postcards, make sure to get the 44 cent postcard stamps, which are cheaper than the standard ones. For letters we recommend the forever stamps which are 60 cents.

Please include the Spanish and Creole line as this outreach includes Hispanic and Creole speaking voters

Shred addresses. Do not reuse or share. 

***To write letters, you can sign up here to get the addresses and scripts.

 

The Broward For Progress Florida postcards and letters to voters campaign is a group of volunteers who write postcards and letters to targeted voters in the hope of increasing voter turnout in government elections.

As we approach the 2022 election, we want to inundate Florida with postcards, reaching out to every registered Democratic, Independent and those with no party affiliation to remind them how much their vote means. By writing handwritten postcards and sending letters, we hope to convey the message that every vote counts in the upcoming election and whether they choose to vote in person or by mail, their vote is their voice. An added benefit is that we build community and have fun while writing them!
