It ain’t over ’til it’s over. We have two confirmed races from the midterms that are going to a runoff election and they are both really important.
Mississippi – U.S. Senate Runoff – Nov. 27
Since none of the candidates for the U.S. Senate received 50% of the vote on Election Day, the top two finishers move on to a runoff. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R), who was appointed to the Senate seat when Thad Cochran resigned, faces former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Mike Espy (D). There’s only a touch over 2 weeks to mobilize Democrats to vote for Espy again. Please consider helping.

Georgia – Secretary of State Runoff – Dec. 4
Is there another state that needs a Democratic Secretary of State to oversee voting and elections more than Georgia? (Well, maybe Kansas, and Florida, and … never mind.) Georgia is high on the list of places that need a complete overhaul of how they engage voters with elections. Former Congressman John Barrow (D) is facing Brad Raffensperger (R) and here’s how we can help.
✦ Donate to fund Barrow’s runoff campaign here
✦ UPDATE: You can sign up for text- or phone-banking here
✦ UPDATE: Sign up to write Postcards to Voters for Barrow here
✦ Sign up to get updates and volunteer opportunities here
✦ Share information on social media about the runoff and use the hashtag #BarrowForGeorgia
Readers, if you hear of other ways we can help these two Democrats win their runoffs in a few short weeks, please let me know in the comments and I’ll update the post. Thank you!

Apologies. Cindy Hyde-Smith is a Republican. I fixed the post.
I’m hung up on neutral postcards. Would a FunFact series on America or Animals be OK, or are you recommending blank white postcards to start with?
I recommend you get in touch directly with the Postcards group. They have guidelines for you to follow, and can answer your questions.
Postcards group. Guess I will look for them then.
The link is in the post, but here it is for easy reference: https://postcardstovoters.org/2018/11/09/espy/
Postcards to Voters is now also writing postcards for Barrow. Postcard writers use a wide variety of cards. I like the “Be A Voter” postcards. You can order them from Amazon. Some of the money goes to Postcards to Voters.
Delighted to hear that they’ve added Barrow’s runoff!
