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.
Since our first canvass in April of 2017, we've collected over 1,100 signed voter pledge postcards. In early October we'll mail those pledges back to the voters.

When Saturday Sept 29, 2018, shifts beginning at 10 am, finishing at 5 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 April 2017 and the fall 2018 elections has been to knock on the doors of these "midterm skipping" voters and ask them to recommit to voting.
We've been using 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 Sept 29, we will prepare the mailing of the second cards.
