Pledge “naleaflets”

Country: United Kingdom

More details
www.notapathetic.com is a little project built by volunteers at mySociety to give a voice to people who won't be voting in the general election. It's non-judgmental and nonpartisan: we just want to give that vast tract of the electorate who won't be showing up at the polling stations come May 5th a place to explain what is keeping them away.

Unlike the launch of www.writetothem.com , we've chosen a grassroots approach to this launch. We'd like people to mail it to their non-voting friends, and (crucially), we'd like a group of dedicated souls to print out a few pages, cut them up into leaflets, and deliver them to 100 homes in their local area. If this is repeated enough times, it'll really help spread the message of NotApathetic.com to those people who are least likely to stumble across it on a day-to-day basis.

We'll be supplying a nicely designed set of flyers for people to print out (several on each page). We'll include the URL when we send out the success mail!
