LETTERWRITING & MEDIA  

Project Blue Fence 2004

What is the mission of Project Blue Fence?

To target undecided voters in neighboring states where the presidential election is expected to be close, influencing them to vote for John Kerry. Undecided voters are sitting on the fence. Our goal is to paint the fence blue.

How will Project Blue Fence be successful?

Undecided voters will be choosing their candidate during September and October. Letters to the editor they read in their local newspaper will influence their decisions. By targeting our letters to specific newspapers in states where the election will be close, we will have more impact.
