About a month ago I wrote an article about how Bernie Sanders could be the first candidate in the history of the United States to win a state as a write-in candidate.
As a result of this article, some very special people volunteered and began working tirelessly to make Bernie Sanders the “President of Vermont”.
To be clear, Sanders winning Vermont will have no effect on the outcome of the presidential election.
Vermont only has three electoral votes and Clinton is supposed to win by a landslide.
So why have we invested so much time and energy?
WE LOVE BERNIE SANDERS AND WE WANT TO CELEBRATE HIS LIFETIME OF COMMITMENT TO MAKING OUR COUNTRY A BETTER PLACE.
At one point our group was infiltrated by someone who told us that she was friends with Jane Sanders and Jane wanted us to stop our write-in movement.
We were heartsick to hear this (false) news, but Jane Sanders tweeted out that the person was lying and that she supported our idea for the people of Vermont to write-in Bernie Sanders.
This was very exciting news for our volunteers.
We now had permission from Jane Sanders herself to write in Bernie’s name!!
Here is the tweet where Jane refutes the words of the person who lied and told us that Jane didn’t want us to write in Bernie’s name.
Local Vermont TV stations and newspapers begin to pick up on our movement and we got a lot of media coverage.
As a result our phone-banking and canvassing have been going extremely well.
Most Vermont residents have treated our volunteers as heroes and are excited about the idea of writing in Bernie and honoring him for his lifetime of commitment.
In fact, our phone-banking success rate has been 48% (12% said that they were still planning to vote for Clinton and 16% said that they would be supporting Trump, 3% were for Gary Johnson and 21% were undecided).
That means that HALF the people we have called have agreed to write-in Bernie Sanders on their Vermont ballots!!
And our job just became a lot easier.
Bernie Sanders himself just came out and said…
“I think in Vermont I think it’s OK ’cause I think Clinton is gonna win. But in some states where it’s close, I want her to win. So if you want to write me in here, I think it’s fine.”
So now we have the endorsement of Bernie Sanders himself!!
But if we are going to make this a reality, we desperately need YOUR HELP!!
As of today, our phone-bankers have only been able to reach 22,000 people.
We are running out of time.
The exciting part is that our plan is an effective plan and IF we can get YOU to help us out the BERNIE SANDERS WILL BECOME THE FIRST CANDIDATE TO WIN A STATE AS A WRITE-IN CANDIDATE!!
This is not only a monumental tribute to Bernie Sanders, but also goes a long way to show what a dedicated group of people can do to restore Democracy in America.
If you love Bernie Sanders, I beg you to…
STOP EVERYTHING AND BECOME PART OF HISTORY RIGHT NOW!!
We just need you to make a few phone calls and read the following script…
Hi my name is (YOUR NAME) and I am with the Vermont Bernie Sanders Write-In Campaign.
How are you on this beautiful autumn day?
I know your time is valuable so I’ll be brief.
Hillary Clinton is predicted to win the Presidency by a landslide so we are reaching out to Vermont citizens encouraging them to honor Bernie Sanders for his lifetime of commitment to the people of Vermont by writing his name in for President this year.
We want to make clear that both Bernie and Jane are okay with Vermont citizens doing this and it will not affect the outcome of the presidency, as Vermont only has three electoral college votes and Hillary Clinton is on track to win by nearly 100 electoral college votes.
The last point I’d like to make is that Donald Trump has NO CHANCE of winning Vermont.
We believe that enough Vermont residents will write in Bernie Sanders for him to gain the victory, but if they do not then Hillary Clinton would still win the state, so this is a risk-free way of honoring Bernie.
So can we count on you to honor Bernie Sanders for his lifetime of commitment by writing his name in for President on November 8?
And then you’re done.
If they say “Yes“, thank them for their time and hang up.
If they say “No“, thank them for their time and hang up.
Calls take less than a minute.
The only question we ever receive is sometimes someone will ask…
“Are you working for Bernie Sanders?”
Each time we say…
“No. We are an independent group of volunteers seeking to honor Senator Sanders, but he is aware of our campaign and both he and Jane say that it is okay to write in his name.”
I know that phone-banking can be intimidating, but this is not normal phone-banking.
The people of Vermont absolutely LOVE Bernie and most of them thank us for calling.
They are usually really happy when they find out that they can write-in Bernie’s name.
But TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!
We need your help NOW!!

You have a chance to be part of history and a chance to honor this amazing man!!
Let’s thank Bernie Sanders for everything he has done for us!!
Together, we can do this!!
