During the call, we’ll all be handwriting letters provided by Vote Forward, a non-partisan initiative aiming to encourage turnout for 10 million voters. Vote Forward provides blank letters and addresses — all you have to do is write a brief statement on why you vote, sign the letter, and prepare the envelope!

Think you’ll need help assembling materials? We’ll send you a complete letter-writing kit: blank letters, stamps, and envelopes! If you think you’ll need a kit, sign up below by 11:59pm Pacific on Thursday, October 1st, so we can kickoff the process of assembling your packet!
