Summary 50,000 Democrats skipped the 2014 midterm elections in CA-07's Congressional district (Sacramento). 13,000 of them are still registered in Sacramento today and will likely skip the 2018 midterm election. We've been executing a really well understood voter pledge strategy to keep that from happening.
As of April 2018, we have collected over 1,000 signed voter pledge postcards. Since voting in Sacramento County begins early in May, it is time to mail those pledges back to the voters!
MAILING PARTY SCHEDULE There will be two-hour shifts through the day, from 10 am to 6 pm. When you RSVP with an email address, we'll contact you about which shift(s) best suit your schedule. Please also RSVP with your phone number, so that we can contact if we complete our task early in the day.
Location When you RSVP with an email address, we send you an email with the location of our staging area, a residence in Carmichael.
When Saturday May 5, 2018, shifts beginning at 10 am, finishing at 6 pm
In the 7th Congressional District of California, there are 13,000 Democrats registered today who previously skipped voting in the midterms. In the 2018 midterms the margin of win for this seat is expected to be probably 1,500 votes. Our project between now and the fall 2018 elections is to knock on the doors of these "midterm skipping" voters and ask them to recommit to voting.
We have a voter reactivation program that involves people signing two postcards promising to vote that we mail back to them right before the June 2018 and November 2018 elections. On May 5, we will prepare the mailing of the first cards!
