Reaching thousands of VA voters with our postcards
This fall, our paid student interns have been recruiting volunteers to help them write postcards to over 9,000 African American registered voters in Petersburg, Virginia, to provide them with critically important encouragement and the information necessary to vote. We have already seen a notable increase in early voting among African Americans in Petersburg compared to prior elections. This is a direct result of our postcard campaign, which put a postcard in the hands of virtually every registered African American voter in Petersburg who had not voted since 2014!!!
