Many Englewood voters are finding handwritten postcards in mailboxes this week. The cards, which remind voters how important it is to vote in the November 6th election, are a striking contrast to the slick campaign mailers that are filling mailboxes this month.
The cards are a grassroots effort by Indivisible Hawaii and Indivisible San Jose, exemplifying this year’s phenomenon of activists in “blue” areas pitching in to help activists working to change “red” areas -- like Englewood.
Englewood Indivisible members have also been writing postcards to local voters, reminding them that it takes a blue wave to turn the red tide. The cards from Indivisible Hawaii note that “In Hawaii, we love our beaches too!”
Altogether, more than 3,000 handwritten postcards are going to both Democrats and independents (voters registered “NPA”) in the 34223 and 34224 zip codes.
Englewood Indivisible thanks the postcard writers of Indivisible Hawaii and Indivisible San Jose!
