Reclaim Our Vote!

We’re bringing back the Reclaim Our Vote (ROV) Postcard Writing Project which you made so successful in the 2020 general election!

ROV Postcarding project for the 2022 midterms runs Thursday, September 15th – Friday, October 25th ~~ ONLY SIX WEEKS!!!

ROV is a nonpartisan campaign of the Center for Common Ground (CCG) founded and led by people of color. Last general election, TST Postcarders wrote over 20,000 ROV postcards to educate voters & help get out the vote in 5 key Southern states — the most of any single faith-based group in our region!  

Our new goal is to reach 16,000 eligible voters in Georgia and Texas!
New voting regulations and redrawn districts in those states could cause confusion that keeps people from casting their votes. So, we’re pulling out our colorful pens to provide voters the info they need by sending ROV Postcards!

This year you can get your postcards and either write them on your own or join others at an in-person or virtual Postcarding Salons over ZOOM. See below for postcard pick-up locations.

How many packets should I take? 

As many as you can write in the next 5 weeks.

ROV Postcards MUST BE MAILED
BETWEEN Monday OCT 17th and Tuesday OCT 25th.

Packets contain either 40 or 100 postcards, addresses, and stamps. Each packet has instructions specific for one of 3 voter locations. Please follow the instructions contained in each packet! Part of the message is preprinted on the cards, so it should only take you a few minutes to complete each card. Instructions for writing are included with each postcard packet. You can also find them online. <<>

When you pick up your cards, please fill out the sign-out sheet you’ll find with the cards. That way we’ll know you came by and how many cards you took.

We’ll have hand sanitizer by the bins. And use the sign-up sheet to let us know you came by. Please.

When do I mail my completed Postcards?

Postcards should be mailed between
Monday, OCT 17th and Tuesday, OCT 25th.

We don’t want voter postcards to arrive too soon or too late!

What types of pens work best?

We recommend extra-fine Sharpie (permanent ink) and smear-resistant gel pens.  We recommend using highlighters for accenting pre-printed text. If you choose to add stickers, please make sure they are neutral. And please, NO FLAGS of any kind.

What if I make a mistake on a postcard?

Please use Wite-out liquid or correction tape to fix mistakes. We have NO extra postcards to give you.
