WARNING: Is SwipeBlue even legal?

I got this email addressed to my daughter, we have never shared an email address so I have no idea why I got this

Neither one of us are registered to a party so I’m not sure how we were singled out by this unless it’s from someone’s contact list?

So they are removing Trump voters from their list,or are they going to destroy ballots, this is all for mail in ballots according to their website

Here is their website:

Here is the email:

In Michigan, Joe Biden has a slight lead over Donald Trump – but it’s way too close for comfort because Michigan could decide our next President.

And in the Senate race, a new poll shows Gary Peters’ lead down to only 1%. We need Gary Peters for a Democratic majority to end Mitch McConnell’s reign of destruction and lies.

So we need to deliver every possible Michigan voter for Joe Biden and Gary Peters!

That’s why we created a powerful new phone app called SwipeBlue – to use all of our phones together to elect Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and good Democrats all the way down the ballot.

It’s easy and fun:

1. Go to your app store (Apple or Google) and install SwipeBlue.

2. With your permission, we’ll match your contacts to the public voter file and show you which friends are registered as Democrats, Republicans, third party, or independents. (Don’t worry – we fully respect your privacy and theirs.)

3. You guess whether each contact will vote for Joe Biden or Donald Trump, and swipe BLUE for Biden, RED for Trump, or GREEN if they are undecided.

After you swipe, we will do the rest:

BLUE (Biden) swipes: we’ll send them 2 texts with a helpful link to vote safely by mail.

GREEN (undecided) swipes: our skilled volunteers will try to persuade them to vote for Joe Biden.

RED (Trump) swipes: we will remove them from our contact lists.

The secret power of SwipeBlue is that you can probably guess how your closer friends and relatives will vote.

So your BLUE, RED, and GREEN swipes will tell us exactly who to contact (or not) to make sure Joe Biden wins.

And to prevent Trump from stealing the election, we must make sure Joe Biden wins by a landslide – so every swipe counts!

SwipeBlue is the most powerful tool for beating Trump. Will you install SwipeBlue today?

Thanks for all you do.

What is SwipeBlue?

SwipeBlue is a free tool for iOS and Android.

SwipeBlue is crucial tool to help ensure your Blue friends actually vote and send Trump packing.

Without the ability to go door to door, digital canvassing via text message is the next best thing.

By swiping Blue, you help us confirm who the true Biden voters are so we can help get them to the polls.

We use publicly available data to show you which of your contacts are registered to vote. All you need to do is swipe blue (left) if you think your contact will vote for Joe Biden, swipe red (right) if they will vote for Donald Trump, or tap and press green if they are undecided.

When you swipe blue, SwipeBlue will check their name against public contact lists, and then text that person a link to verify their registration and pledge to vote safely by mail for Joe Biden. Red voters will be taken off our contact list.

What happens after I swipe?

Every time you swipe blue, SwipeBlue will text that person a link to verify their registration and pledge to vote safely by mail for Joe Biden. You do not have to contact them yourself, unless of course you want to! We will protect your privacy by anonymizing all swipes so they do not refer to you.

Tap and swipe green for swing voters, and we’ll reach out to them with a 1:1 conversation about why they should vote for Biden in 2020.

If you like SwipeBlue, we hope you’ll ask your Democratic friends to join us.
