POSTCARDS 4 DEMOCRACY!
SAMPLE POSTCARD MESSAGES
TO SIGN OR NOT: People have done everything from signing with initials to putting their return address. I think return address best, since you are writing to THEIR home. But do what feels comfortable.
Dear Elector ______:
Please vote on Dec. 19 for the candidate who won the national popular vote by more than 2.5 million! It will take courage, but everyone’s vote must count equally in a democracy.
FROM TWO PEOPLE WITH LOTS OF POLITICAL EXPERIENCE:
1. Dear Elector_______: Your action on Dec. 19 is of the utmost importance. Please do your very best to make a wise choice.
2. Dear Henry : Congratulations! You are a constitutional officer of the USA. Please! Vote your conscience. Please! Vote for the high vote getter. Bless you.
FROM ALTHEA'S POSTCARD PARTY:
1. Democracy is best served by the popular vote. I urge you to vote for the winner of the popular vote.
2. In many recent elections the electoral votes don't reflect the intentions of the majority of voters. Please cast your vote as the popular vote reveals those intentions, and it will strengthen our democracy.
3. The voters have made it clear in the popular vote, that the electoral numbers don't reflect the will of the people. The wishes of the people must be heard. You have a chance to enhance our democracy by voting as the popular vote shows.
A VERY GOOD ANTI-TRUMP MESSAGE
Alexander Hamilton wrote that the purpose of the Electoral College is to determine if candidates are qualified, not engaged in demagogy, and free of foreign influence. Donald Trump has shown us that he does not meet these standards. Please do your duty to protect the country. Cast your vote for someone else.
AN EMOTIONAL MESSAGE:
Please consider casting your electoral vote for the candidate who won the election by more than one million votes. It breaks my heart that my democracy doesn't count each person's vote equally. You can change this and make history by voting for the winner of the National Popular Vote. thank you,
|Someone emailed me that they felt "courage" was important to mention, so I started putting it in.|
