POLITICO is bringing transparency to this year’s midterm congressional elections by shining a light on how campaigns and outside groups are using political mailers to target, persuade and talk to voters.
In past elections, we uncovered mailers targeting Black voters in Virginia and Florida and urging them to vote for third-party candidates to siphon votes away from Democratic candidates, as well as Democratic mailers meddling in GOP primaries around the country.
We’ve also reported on disgraced former Rep. Duncan Hunter’s Islamophobic campaign mailers attacking his opponent for his deceased grandfather’s alleged ties to a 1972 terrorist attack.
We learned of these mailers after readers sent them to us.
That’s why we are asking you to send us photos of any and all mailers you receive about candidates for Senate, House and statewide offices.
We appreciate you sharing photos of your political mailers. Your privacy is important to us. We will not publish your name, contact information or anything you tell us without first reaching out to you and getting your permission. We may publish the photos of campaign mailers you share but will first make sure to remove identifying information, such as your name and address.
