See the Scorecard for Tony the Democrat’s GOTV Postcard Campaigns (Complete Update, with Notable Extras, December 24, 2017)

See the scorecard for the GOTV postcard campaigns led by Tony the Democrat, and you’ll see that you matter, and your efforts matter.

 

Tony the Democrat and his team have been leading postcard campaigns to Get Out The Vote (GOTV) for worthy Democrats on all levels–local, state, and federal elections–as of early 2017. Since then he has recruited more than 4,000 people to participate and help the chosen candidates.

 

Someone emailed OTYCD to suggest that we publish a running scorecard of the Tony the Democrat campaigns, and we thought it was a good idea. This tally is accurate as of October 1, 2017, and is in chronological order. We’ll update it periodically.

 

Also, look under the ‘Postcard Campaigns’ heading on OTYCD to see past postcard campaigns and learn about new ones. OTYCD has not managed to cover all of Tony’s postcard campaigns–sometimes we learn about them too late to get a post up in time to help–but we did write about those for Ossoff, Parnell, Gaddis, Cavanaugh, Patterson, Keys-Gamarra, Taddeo, and Jones, and we look forward to writing about more.

Send Postcards to Help GOTV for Phoenix Democrat Kevin Patterson

Update with Results: Patterson pulled in 47.93 percent of the vote to his opponent’s 52.07 percent. This represents an increase in the Democratic vote of 4.3 percent, or 1,300. The margin between the two candidates was less than 1,500. That’s an impressive result for a guy who went up against an eight-year incumbent who outspent him five to one.

Update: Tony the Democrat and the postcard-writing volunteers completed mailings to the full list of addresses in Phoenix, so this campaign is closed. Please look for the post on Karen Keys-Gamarra’s campaign for the Fairfax County School Board in Virginia. We’ll update this post after August 29 to let you know how Kevin Patterson did.

Join a postcard campaign to help get out the vote for Democrat Kevin Patterson, candidate for city council in Phoenix, Arizona. 

Tony the Democrat’s latest postcard campaign is on behalf of Democrat Kevin Patterson, who is running for City Council from District 6 in Phoenix. The special election takes place Tuesday, Aug 29.

 

To obtain addresses, text HELLO to Abby the Addressbot:

484 ASK ABBY aka 484 275 2229

 

If you want more than 15 addresses at a time or you don’t do texts for whatever reason, email:

Postcards     @       TonyTheDemocrat.org

 

Your handwritten cards will go to people in District 6 who have voted Democratic in the past.

Same general rules are in effect but the particulars have changed.

Address the cards to ‘Important Voters,’ ‘VIP Voters,’ ‘Best Voters,’ etc. Do not include a party affiliation in the greeting in case the household is mixed.

 

All postcards should say the following:

 

Democrat Kevin Patterson is running for Phoenix City Council District 6.
Election Day is Tuesday August 29th.
Kevin says YES to families who deserve housing affordability in safe neighborhoods.
Other things you can say, if you have room on the card:
I hope you won’t mind this friendly reminder about an upcoming election.
Kevin taught at-risk Phoenix high school students in psychology helping them earn college credit.
A Phoenix resident for 19 years, Kevin is married with two young daughters.
Fast-growing cities need hard-working problem-solvers in City Council like Kevin.
Please make a plan to vote Tuesday, Aug 29.

Early voting begins Aug 2 through Aug 25.

 

Thank you for your time and your vote!
