A Note About Mail Dates
The effects of “please vote” messages fade quickly, so the best strategy — and the one we have proven to be effective in the past — is to put letters in mailboxes as close as possible to the election without missing it. That said, we recognize adjustments may be needed this year.
To help fine-tune our approach, we’re tracking federal and state lawsuits that may affect absentee deadlines and policies, USPS performance, the availability of Election Day ballot drop boxes, expected turnout by voting method, early voting availability, voter preferences and lessons learned during the primaries, evolving electoral processes, and more for all of our target states. We’re also running an experiment to assess mail times and how they affect GOTV messaging.
Based on the data we’ve gathered so far, there is a good chance we will mail earlier than originally planned. We are collecting more information before deciding by how many days and in which states. We understand and share your concern about this question and will email all of our volunteers once we make an informed decision.
