Write a Letter to the Editor

You can play a big role in spreading the word about why a Mitt Romney presidency - and the prospect of Mitt Romney appointing Supreme Court justices -- would be dangerous for America.

How? By writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Letters to the editor are extremely effective because voters trust people in their own communities. And newspapers want to hear from you about what matters.

Be sure to give your name, address and a phone number with your letter. For those submitted via e-mail, the subject line should read “Letter to the Editor.” For letters submitted via regular mail, they should say “Attn: Editor.” Before a letter is printed, a member of the newspaper staff may give you a call.

Letters shouldn’t be much more than 200-300 words. Short and to-the-point letters are the most effective.
It is important that you use your own words when writing a letter to the editor. But, here are a few points you will probably want to make:

  • As voters go to the polls, they need to remember what's at stake in our courts.
  • A Mitt Romney presidency would be dangerous for America. Even worse, he would make Supreme Court appointments that would have a negative impact on Americans for generations.
  • Mitt Romney wants to overturn Roe v. Wade. He would appoint justices who would take women backwards. He even opposes requiring employers to cover birth control. A woman's right to control her own health decisions hangs in the balance with this election.
  • Mitt Romney believes that "corporations are people" and his extreme views would hurt the middle class and consumers for generations.
  • Feel free to incorporate "RomneyCourt.com" into your letter to steer readers to our Romney Court website so they can get more information. You could say something like "I read on RomneyCourt.com that..."
