Writing letters… The Democrats of Rossmoor will continue to partner with Swing Left in 2019 and 2020. The Swing Left “Super State Strategy for 2020” is to win all the Houses—the White House, the Senate, the House, and State Houses—by registering new voters to vote in the presidential election. The Swing Left tactic uses volunteer power from all over the country to send lots of personal letters to potential new voters in 11 super states. You can make an impact.  

Interested? Sign up here for one or more Wednesday letter-writing sessions or drop in on any Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. It only takes one hour. We do ask for donations for postage. If writing is not your thing, donations for postage will gladly be accepted.

Texting… On any day from home and on Wednesdays 4–6 p.m., Democrats of Rossmoor help Democrats across the U.S. to vote, volunteer, and/or contact Congress on key issues. To get started, contact Susan for training (one-on-one, any day of the week). You’ll need a laptop (preferred) or iPad/tablet or smartphone. We use a website (not your phone’s texting app), selecting (not typing) pre-written texts to send and to respond.
