Vote for Obama: Postcard Writing Campaign. Adopt this Campaign for Your Area!

Pass It On:
Write Postcards for Barack

If you want to participate or if you want to help coordinate postcard writing in your area, send us an e-mail at

Here is how to participate in 3 easy steps:

STEP ONE: Individually or with other women in your community, purchase 10 or more postcards for each of you to write along with postcard stamps. If possible, purchase postcards that represent your city or state. HU note: for those of us in New York City, postcards showing other things or places would be better, though I'm kinda partial to those that show the Statue of Liberty. The federal court has ruled it's in New Jersey anyway.

STEP TWO: If writing postcards in a group, you might have a Postcard Party to get them all written and posted at the same time. Each postcard message should be brief and to the point - no more than 2-4 sentences. Here is a sample message:

Dear Fellow Voter,

I voted (or I am voting) for Barack Obama for President because he is the best candidate to bring our country together to solve the problems we are facing. This is the type of leadership we need right now. I hope that you will vote for Barack too.

Sincerely, (Sign Your Name, City and State)

Note from HU: feel free to fashion your own message, or mention those qualities of his that you think would have the most appeal to a woman from your state.
I may note his work to get medical care for veterans, his bi-partisan work to get under control dangerous radioactive materials loose in Russia, his work on ethics legislation, both in Illinois and in the US Senate. can tell you about his specific economic policies -- mortgage relief, for example. tracks legislation that's good for the most Americans. His grade for last year, A+. He has voted to support Social Security, for the government to negotiate for cheaper drugs for Medicare, and for the Children's Health Insurance Act. He advocates a strong policy of mortgage relief.

STEP THREE: Put stamps on each card, leave the return address and mailing address areas on each card blank (the cards will be addressed by volunteers), and mail all of your postcards together in an envelope(s) or box to:

c/o Volunteer Post Card Writing Campaign
193 E. Rich Street,
Columbus, Ohio 43215

Please mail your postcards no later than Monday, April 7th.

Don't forget to send an e-mail to to let us know that you will be participating. You should also send an e-mail to let us know that your postcards are on the way.

We look forward to hearing from you!!!

Note from HU: Please cc me at on the email to them if you're going to do this.

Thank you,

Helen Updike
