Georgia Postcard Project -SENATE RUNOFF

11/18/2020
Hello & thank you for your interest in the Georgia Postcard Project!

We want to announce that we will have 500,000 postcards ready to write in a few days. The printer went to press and we have cranked up the ol’ infrastructure. The team has been working hard to make sure we have everything in place.

As you know, we like to be as specific as we can about where we are and where we are going! There are A LOT of new people involved in the project and we are happy to have you here. The Georgia Postcard Project works differently than other groups. We (the project administrators) are all VOLUNTEERS who live in Georgia and we have been working hard to help turn it BLUE! We volunteer with the Democratic Party of Georgia to get important Voter Protection information to voters on HOW to vote for Democrats statewide.

We are so excited to have these TWO Senate elections for Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff and know how important they are to the entire country, but please remember that these are also our state elected representatives.

We welcome help from our fellow states and we are planning to have locations around the country who will help us! We will have locations in New York, Connecticut, Texas, California, Missouri, Massachusetts, Colorado, Virginia, Florida and Washington, DC among others. We are working through the list of requests and will talk to those volunteer team leaders and make sure we are on the same page.

BIG NEWS: ALL of the voter addresses will be printed ON the postcards! We will NOT be emailing addresses for this postcard project. This will help with security of the addresses and speed of the GPP writers - no labels to mess with or addresses to mess up! You will only need to WRITE the suggested message tailored to the addressee and mail the postcards. Each writer will be responsible for their own postage. We will NOT be able to assist with postage, unfortunately.

The Democratic Party of Georgia is providing the postcards and printing of the addresses. We hope that you will support them with a generous donation in addition to volunteering to write postcards. We appreciate their time and effort to FLIP GEORGIA BLUE and the incredible work they are doing to WIN these Senate seats over the next several weeks. We need them strong going into 2022 as we will have a Governor’s race and Rev. Warnock’s seat to hold:).

Because volunteers are not paying for the postcards this time around, the money we raised with GoFundMe and Venmo for the Senate runoff election will be returned to the donors in the next few days. Purchases made on the online store will now benefit the joint Democratic Party of Georgia & Georgia Postcard Project fundraising effort.

While we thank you immensely for all the help and support thus far, to properly ensure responsible FEC-compliant fundraising, we invite you to donate to the DPG through our very own Georgia Postcard Project fundraising link here: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/fin_gpp .

We want to say that we know there will not be enough postcards for everyone at this moment. 500,000 is A LOT of postcards and we will reach almost half of the Democratic electorate with these cards (assuming there are about 2 voters per household). This will help voters MAKE A PLAN to vote and give them the resources needed to protect it. There are other ways you will be able to help our elections in Georgia and we are putting together a great list that we will have on a page on this website soon. 

The GPP volunteers will be available to the Democratic Party of Georgia if they decide they need more assistance and we will let you know!

We know that some new writers to this project did not understand that we use a consistent postcard design or thought we would send addresses by email this time. In the coming days, we will post a few places you can order addresses to use on a generic postcard, if you so choose.

We hope this will start to answer some of the questions you had. I will be posting more information in the days ahead as we solidify the Georgia pick up locations (this process will be slightly different so stay tuned) and the out of state contacts.

Once again, THANK YOU for all your hard work and dedication to helping FLIP GEORGIA BLUE!! We know that we haven’t been able to respond to each of your messages and offers to help, but we want you to know that they are all appreciated and we look forward to getting postcards in your hands soon!
