October 14 @ 12:00 am - October 27 @ 12:15 am PDT
Join this event! Starts on the day you get your ballot.
Take a selfie of you with your ballot and post it on social media with the hashtags #DonYourPearls #SuburbanHousewifeThis #BlueWave2020 #BidenHarris2020 Get creative and dress in your best 1950’s outfit and show #45 it is time to make room for #46. If you can, vote the day you get your ballot. The goal is to have most of them counted by election night!
Social media gives us a unique opportunity to reach more people in a moment than any hour in phone banking or door belling can do.
So let’s make this a social media blitz! When you get your ballot and take your photo supporting Joe Biden get that selfie up as soon as possible! If you have a ballot box in your area take the picture next to it. If you have to drop it off at a county office, take the photo outside the office (far enough to not be considered campaigning there as that is usually illegal.)
Be outrageous in your “suburban” outfits. Some plan to dress like 1950’s housewives. Others can show how undefinable suburbia can be. It is up to you! (Me, I am going to dress us my black dress and pearls and have a small rainbow flag in my hand)
Then post that picture everywhere! Share it to groups on Facebook. Post it to Instagram, Twitter, Do a TikTok video, etc. Anywhere that you can add the hashtags #SuburbanHousewifeThis #DonYourPearls #BlueWave2020 and #BidenHarris2020
There are lots of reasons for this event. The first is to encourage people to vote early and not mail the ballot back if you can avoid it, since we want it to be counted in time. The second is to get people excited about the act of casting their ballot against Trump! Third is using social media to show everyone our support for Democrats, especially Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Feel free to add other hashtags.
