Last weekend, writers Ann Parker, Mysti Berry, and I put together a Post Card Party through an ACLU program to GET OUT THE VOTE. This non-partisan venture ended in something like 1,000,000 post cards (that is the total from ACLU, not our little party!) being mailed to voters all over the country, who might need a reminder of how important is our civic duty. (Coincidentally, “Civic Duty” is also the title of my story in this anthology, released in July, with proceeds also going to the ACLU.) The messages on the cards were nonpartisan, simply urging people to VOTE.

Low Down Dirty Vote

Below are some photos marking the occasion.

Nothing says you can’t have food and fun while doing your civic duty.

PS: 750  cards completed!

    I am hosting postcard parties, too! We are doing a local get out the vote, two state reps (my gerrymandered county is divided in half less than a mile south of me, and a state candidate from another district 5 miles north of me. We had 5 last week and wrote 134 postcards. Next party is tonight!

    Great to hear this, Maryellen. Last I read, the ACLU sent out 1 million cards — they’d hoped for 100,000!
