Grandmothers Against Gun Violence wants your help

Postcard-writing effort planned ahead of Nov. 8 election

The advocacy group Grandmothers Against Gun Violence is asking for help with a get-out-the-vote effort ahead of the November election.

Here’s how it works:

The group wants to elect Washington state legislators who support the mission of eliminating gun violence. It has identified key legislative districts in Washington with potentially tight races. It is asking volunteers to write and mail postcards to 10 voters in those districts.

To make it easier, the group will provide postcards, mailing labels, stamps and the message.

Supplies will be available for pickup at certain Seattle Public Library locations on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 10-11.

But this is important: Do not just show up. Follow this link to choose a date and a location.

The Grandmothers group asks that the postcards be mailed on Thursday, Oct. 20, in order to arrive shortly before voters receive their ballots.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8.
