Postcard Party (In Spirit)

We need volunteers to prepare postcards in their homes!

We need to get the word out about mail-in voting for the June 23 primary! We have cards, address labels, and stamps—but we need volunteers to put the parts together and send them off. We have 1000 to mail!  We’ll drop off 50 cards (or more, if you want them), with labels and stamps to your porch or mailbox, a no-contact transaction. Please contact Mary-Sherman Willis to volunteer:  chair@RappDems.org.

Please Check Your Registration and Request an Absentee Ballot!

(message courtesy of https://madisonhuddle.org/) 

With many government offices in Virginia closed for face-to-face business due to the coronavirus pandemic, new voter registrations in April plummeted from levels typically seen in high-interest presidential election years. The state saw just 5,467 new voter registrations in April, a 73 percent drop from the same month in 2016 and an 81 percent decrease from 2012, according to registration data published by the Virginia Department of Elections and compiled by the Virginia Public Access Project. https://www.virginiamercury.com/2020/05/14/virginia-sees-new-voter-registrations-plummet-in-april/

Tram Nguyen, co-executive director of progressive advocacy group New Virginia Majority, said that her organization registered about 9,000 voters in April of 2016. This year, she said, that work — which helps reach people who are less inclined to enter sensitive personal information into a website — has “pretty much stopped.”

Clearly, this does not bode well for this year’s elections (unless you’re a Republican). Please verify your registration and request an absentee ballot citing reason “2A My disability or illness” (social distancing during COVID-19).  Please share this message with others in your personal network.

Thank you!
