If you want things to change, one way to do that is help vote Republicans out.

Vote Forward, my favorite letter-writing, election winning organization, is bringing back "The Big Send"—their biggest letter writing program of the year—with a goal of sending 10 million letters to voters ahead of the midterm elections this fall.

These letters are easy—print them up, write a couple of lines about why you vote, address them, and hold them until the Big Send date in October. Studies show they boost turnout by .8%, which in electoral terms is big.

But VF needs more writers.

If you’ve done this before, please go to your dashboard and adopt even 5 letters. If you haven’t, there’s a sign up page.

Also, to kick off the return of The Big Send, Vote Forward is hosting a virtual letter writing event on May 12 at 8pm ET/5pm PT. It’ll be a fun way to learn about what they do, have the letters explained to you, and see how many others are writing them.

The Vote Forward letters are great because you can start now and pile them up for October so you're not rushing. Even 5 helps!

@AgentCarter_SSR @SteveRogers @TonyStark I did that for 2020. Will likely do that again, thanks for the reminder! Asking folks here who would probably know - would it help to hear from permanent residents who can't vote yet?
