Donate to Help Pay Postal Costs for Galveston County Applications for Mail-in Ballots

Goal Thermometer

This coming January, we hope to mail out over 50,000 applications to Galveston County seniors and others who have difficulties with in-person voting.  This application will make sure they get a mail-in ballot for every 2016 election.   These application will only be sent to Democrats or those likely to vote democratic and the county party needs your help to pay the postage.

We can win elections if we get out the vote and, for many, a mail-in ballot is the only option left after all our new Texas restrictions on voting.

Maximizing voter turnout will only happen when we maximize the opportunity for voting by mail.  Just compare the 2010 and 2014 off-year elections and you find the following:

 - Change in total votes cast across Texas: down by  0.9%
 - Change in total mail-in ballots for Texas: up by     56.2%

This change was greatly affected by the mail in ballot applications sent by the Democratic party in 2014.  

Please help us maximize Democratic voter turnout for all of 2016. Contribute what you can to help reach our goal of $2,000 by the end of November.  All funds collected will pay for mailing the applications in January.
