PLANT YARD SIGNS
Biden-Harris Yard signs build real momentum and can help us win, especially in swing states! You can help buy and plant signs all across these key swing states: Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina, Iowa, Maine and Texas. HERE’S HOW:
- Contact Democratic friends who live in a swing state. Ask if you can ship them signs to plant in their yard and if they can find other friends, family and neighbors who also want signs.
- Buy the signs yourself from “iWantMyStyles,” an Etsy store selling Biden-Harris signs that are inexpensive and good quality with fast delivery. They average $11.50 per sign (including shipping) when you buy a package of 10. You will need to create an Etsy account if you don’t already have one.
- In Etsy, message “iWantMyStyles” and give them your friend’s shipping address (if you use Apple Pay). Otherwise, all the signs will come to you.
- If you live in a swing state, buy and offer the yard signs to your family, friends and neighbors!
- Note that yard signs are likely available from campaign offices, but they are often more expensive and take a long time to ship.
In order to vote safely in a pandemic and overcome the unparalleled voter suppression (by Trump and the GOP), we must make a safe voting plan! And we can help others to vote by sharing information and encouraging them to make a voting plan. Below are some helpful resources.
