The wonderful two-time Newbery Medal winning writer Kate DiCamillo just sent us this delightful image, which you can print as a postcard or lawn sign to encourage your friends and neighbors to vote on November 6.
All of our beautiful images can easily be printed, even on a home printer, as postcards, which you and your children can deliver to your neighbors. You might also have a party and invite your friends to join you to write postcards. Children can’t yet vote officially — but they can do their part.
You can also suggest that friends and neighbors visit www.vote.org, where we all can find out if we’re registered, easily register if we’re not, and even request a mail-in ballot.
Below is information about how to print postcards and lawn signs. Please send us photos when you write your postcards and deliver them to your neighbors, and when you put up your lawn sign, and we will share them often and widely, with the following hashtags: #votenov6 #dearneighborpleasevote #raisingourvoices
To Print Postcards:
You can download PDFs of four images per page here:
You can print at home on #67 stock, which is approved by the Post Office for postcards. If your printer can handle 110 cardstock, that works too! The postcards print on regular 8 1/2 x 11, and then cut each sheet into 4 postcards.
You can also print the cards at Staples, using these directions:
