Our Jewish tradition is clear: "A ruler is not to be appointed unless the community is first consulted" (Babylonian Talmud Berachot 55a). We believe our democracy is strongest when every voice is heard, and every vote is counted. Join our nonpartisan campaign to ensure all have an equal say in decisions that impact their lives by sending out postcards to voters across the nation.

Once again, the Reform Jewish Movement is partnering with the Center for Common Ground's Reclaim Our Vote (ROV) Campaign to engage under-represented voters through postcarding efforts in key states. Reclaim Our Vote has identified states to target. These states all have a significant population of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) individuals but have low voter participation in these communities due to voter suppression. Postcarding will take place between now and October 2024.

First, order a postcard kit. Each postcard kit contains instructions, a script, labels for the script (registrar contact information or pledge to vote), voter addresses, and 30 postcards. You will need to provide the stamps.

  • If you are postcarding with a group, everyone must complete the nonpartisan pledge. QR code can be found on the bottom of this page. 
  • If you are new to postcard-writing with the RAC and ROV, please watch this short introductory video.
  • Use only postcards provided by the RAC, with inclusive, multi-racial images and uplifting messages.
  • Please don't change, edit, or add to scripts. Wording is written in collaboration with our respected community of color partner organizations for specific voter groups. 
    • Etiquette varies by region and culture and shows respect. For salutations (e.g. Dear Mr _), please carefully follow the directions in your script for the list you're given. 
  • Please respect and protect voter privacy: Shred and delete voter lists when done. Cover personal info if taking photos of your written postcards to share with friends or on social media.
  • Neatly hand write (print preferred) and address: a personal touch. Do not machine print addresses or script. If handwriting is iffy, have a friend check for legibility. Here is an example.
  • DO use the pre-printed labels with county info, for accuracy and legibility.
  • Please use color to underline or highlight key phrases or decorate a bit. This makes our cards eye-catching and personal; more likely to be noticed, picked up, and read!
  • Leave 1" space under address for the Post Office to affix or print a barcode, and ample room at the top for the postmark. No decorative stickers, as they can jam postal scanners.
  • If you are new to postcarding with the RAC or ROV, please email your postcard group leader (if applicable) or campaign@rac.org a photo of your first completed card to check over before you continue to write. 
  • Before you begin writing your postcards take a moment to mark the moment with a blessing. Take what could be a mundane act and elevate it to a higher level. You can offer the blessing provided on the small card or another of your own choosing or creation.
  • Feel free to ask questions to campaign@rac.org. 
  • Learn more and get involved in the Every Voice Every Vote Campaign.
