Join Indivisible Evanston to write postcards to likely Democratic voters in Wisconsin and Michigan, encouraging them to vote in the November Presidential election. We will supply the postcards, names and addresses and script. You just supply the postage (and support the post office at the same time)! We have packets of 100 cards and materials available for pick up seven days a week at three locations in Evanston. You can also sign up to pick up cards in Chicago with Indivisible Chicago, or order directly online to have them shipped to you if you are outside of the Chicagoland area. Our goal when we started this project was to write 100,000 postcards. The response has been amazing! We’ve already distributed almost all 70,000 Wisconsin postcards. So now we have 30,000 Michigan postcards to distribute. Same script, same instructions. Just different postcards. Once we distribute all the Wisconsin postcards, we will start distributing the Michigan postcards, so on’t be surprised if your next pack of cards is for Michigan. Even though we can't meet in person, the next best thing is meeting up with your fellow activists on Zoom! So, on Monday nights we are also hosting weekly Postcard Parties on Zoom until we mail our postcards in October! You can help us reach our goal of 100k postcards and have fun doing it. The best thing about Zoom parties is that you can get your friends and family anywhere to write cards and join the parties, too. Sign up and join us! You will get a confirmation with a link to join the parties once you have registered and been verified. You can use that same link going forward for any of our Indivisible Evanston weekly Monday night postcard parties. If you need postcards for a Monday night party, you can still pick them up on Monday if you SIGN UP before 10 a.m. on Sundays.
How it works:
Go to our Sign Up and select your preferred Evanston postcard pickup date/location.
Check the blue Sign up box on the date and location you want to pick up.
Click on the the black "Submit and Sign up" box at the bottom of the page.

Click on the black "Sign Up Now" box to complete your registration.
How many cards can I get?
For ease of distribution, cards will be available only in packs of 100. But you have six months to complete them. Share them with friends!
How do I get stamps?
We are not providing stamps. If you don't want to go to the post office to buy stamps, just order them online. CLICK HERE.
If you have trouble ordering online, please contact Candace Davis.
When are we mailing the cards?
All cards will be mailed at the end of October. Due to issues surrounding the deadline for absentee ballots, we cannot yet identify the mailing date. We will notify you of the required mailing date closer to the election.
What do I do with the cards once I am done writing them?
You can hold onto the completed cards and mail them yourself on the specified October mailing date.
You can also bring the completed cards back to where you picked them up, and we will mail them for you in WI or MI in October.
PLEASE do not return cards to us without postage. Thank you!
