Notice to prospective candidates in the 2018 NALC election (updated)

NALC has changed email vendors for the 2018 election. Blue Bulldog Digital, a labor focused digital communication firm, has been retained to handle requests by candidates for national office in the 2018 NALC election to distribute campaign literature by e-mail.  NALC’s previously announced contractor, Kelly Press, will no longer be involved.

Beginning on June 15, Blue Bulldog Digital will be responsible for receiving campaign material from candidates and managing the distribution of this material by email.  Any candidate(s) wishing to arrange distribution of campaign literature by email, at his/her own expense, must contact Christian Norton Monday through Friday, 10am-6pm EST at

Blue Bulldog Digital will advise candidates of the cost and options for distributing campaign literature by email. Payments must be made in advance either through PayPal or by check. Payments by check must clear before work begins.

Blue Bulldog Digital requires 3 business days advance notice for set-up, preparation and formatting of e-mail campaign literature.

Candidates in the 2018 election may elect to send e-mails to: (1) all e-mail addresses in NALC’s current and archived databases; or (2) to email addresses that can be identified as being within specific National Business Agent regions. Candidates may also send emails separately to active or retiree members.

Members will continue to have the option of unsubscribing from receipt of campaign literature at any time.  Each candidate email will contain a link allowing recipients to unsubscribe from receiving future candidate email.

Finally, candidates should check the May issue of The Postal Record for additional information on convention displays and purchasing advertisements in The Postal Record (on the last page of this pdf). The information about the change to Blue Bulldog Digital will appear in the July issue of The Postal Record.
