Election 2016 Vote By Mail Fund Raiser

Help Expand Use of Democratic Mail-in Ballots for November Election

Deadline for Contributions: 9/15/2016


Last year we raised over $4,100 to send out applications to senior Democrats across the county so they could easily apply to vote by mail. The success of this effort was demonstrated by the number of mail-in ballots submitted for the Texas primary - we sent shock waves through the county and city governments with the increased volume of applications and then matched the number of Republican mail-in ballots during the primary. 

It’s time to further expand our voting impact in Galveston county. The November election needs Democratic votes more than ever to tell our elected officials we want something done about the decades of economic, social, racial, and environmental injustices perpetrated by the Republicans and their excessively wealthy friends. This is especially true in Texas. 

The Texas Democratic Party has launched a second phase of this campaign to grow the number of Democrats voting by mail. Our goal is to reach an additional 8,265 Democratic seniors, which we can do for the bargain price of $3,500, thanks to the bulk printing and mailing provided by the TDP. Remember, our path to victory depends on getting our Democratic base, and those who lean Democratic, to VOTE!

As you did so generously before the primary election, please help with our latest county effort to Get Out The Vote (GOTV) by contributing either by check or ActBlue no later than 9/15/2016:

Help Fund Galveston County Primary Mail-In Ballot Postage

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.

You have two options for making a donation: ActBlue or writing a check and sending it to our new county PO Box.
