We know that several million Wisconsin votes are expected to be cast by mail with absentee ballots in the November 2020 elections.
In September, the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) will mail absentee ballot request forms to at least 2.7 million eligible voters in Wisconsin alone, to be returned for an absentee ballot valid for the November presidential election.
Some other constituencies will still request and receive their absentee ballots outside of this process. Many Wisconsin voters already signed up to receive absentee ballots for the rest of the year when they applied for their ballot this past spring.*
SO WHY IS IT NECESSARY TO MAIL POSTCARDS?
This equates to a vote-by-mail capacity that has never been seen or previously considered in our state. There have been some new procedures put in place by the WEC to account for this fact. However, we remember the headaches, shenanigans, and outright voter disenfranchisement in this past April’s election by the Republican Party of Wisconsin and its allies.
One chief takeaway was that voters, municipal clerks, and the courts require time to respond when the unexpected happens and when partisan political gamesmanship takes place.
That is why Menomonee Falls Action Team created postcards to instruct voters on how to request their ballots prior to the large-scale September statewide campaign already planned.
WHAT DO POSTCARDS TO VOTERS LOOK LIKE?
Postcards come printed with an illustration showing how easy it is to request an absentee ballot, give additional information through printed text, and feature a large space for volunteers to express why voting is so important. Due to the costs of printing and postage, the voters we target will be specific and strategic, and will only include strong Democrats.
With COVID-19 infection rates trending upwards due to irresponsible moves by Republicans and the Trump Administration, it is more clear than ever that voting by mail is the safe way to have your vote count.
