Subject line: Partner with [Business] to Celebrate Vote Early Day!

Hello [Name], 

I’m reaching out to ask [Organization Name] to join [Business] in celebrating Vote Early Day this year!

Vote Early Day is a civic holiday started by media companies, nonprofits, technology platforms, election administrators, influencers, and businesses to give voters the tools and knowledge they need to cast their ballot early in a fun and engaging way. Through this tentpole day of action, organizations across the country are coming together to help Americans vote early and celebrate our democracy.

Voting early ensures that last-minute problems, long lines at the polls, voter disinformation, and confusing election laws can’t stop Americans from casting their ballot. Millions of Americans have options to vote ahead of Election Day by mail or in person, and we’re excited to be hosting an event to help ensure people in our community have the tools they need to cast their ballot early.

This year, Vote Early Day is scheduled for October 29th, the Tuesday before Halloween. [Business] is joining the movement to celebrate Vote Early Day because [insert your reason], and we’d love to have you join us. Our plan is to [insert activation plan].

All the best,
