Join the Postcards to Wisconsin Campaign (Updated January 25)

Help raise voter awareness in Wisconsin by joining the Postcards to Wisconsin campaign.


This post originally ran in December 2019. Because this is a time-sensitive campaign, we at OTYCD will rerun it every few weeks leading up to the mailing date.


Updated January 25, 2020: The Postcards to Wisconsin folks have amended the mailing dates for the postcard campaign.


Postcards should go out between March 26 and March 27, 2020 to ensure that they arrive around Friday, April 3, 2020.


If your packet of information stated a later date, IGNORE IT and go with March 26-27 instead.


If your packet called for an earlier date (some in states outside of Wisconsin and Illinois got them), stick with that earlier date.


And good news! As of January 18, more than 1,400 volunteers had ordered more than 341,000 postcards to prepare and mail for the campaign. Yay!


Original text follows.


Wisconsin will be a key state in the 2020 election. Whichever presidential candidate wins Wisconsin will likely win it all. It’s very difficult to succeed in 2020 without it.


Trump’s team knows this, and have already been targeting the state with money, time, and effort.


Fortunately, so too are Trump’s opponents. One of the many efforts to secure Wisconsin for the Democrats is the Postcards to Wisconsin campaign.


A project of the Indivisible Chicago Alliance, it’s recruiting folks to hand-write and prepare 500,000 postcards to arrive ahead of the Wisconsin primary, taking place April 7, 2020.


A few things to know if you wish to participate:


The postcards will be written between January 4, 2020 and March 31, 2020.


You should use the postcards that Postcards to Wisconsin will supply. Order postcards here, in a minimum count of 100.


You’ll receive a package in the mail that includes the postcards you requested, the addresses to which they should go, and a specific date when you should mail the finished cards. DO NOT mail the cards any earlier than the date you are assigned. 


As per usual with postcard-writing campaigns, you must supply the postcard stamps. They cost 35 cents each.


If you can’t participate, you can donate to the Postcards to Wisconsin campaign instead. Its organizers say that $10 allows them to reach 194 Wisconsin residents.
