Get Out the Vote Effort

Barbara Stewart

To support the national Get Out the Vote effort by Vote Forward (, one Robson Community resident invited American Association of University Women (AAUW) group members to write postcards that will be sent to registered voters who did not participate in the 2016 election. The script is provided, simple, and reminds the recipient of the importance of the upcoming Nov. 3 election and, most importantly, asks them to be sure to vote. This national effort has committed to writing 10 million voter turnout reminders for the 2020 election.
