Campaign Tips Before you Start:
If you are canvassing in the colder months, remember to bundle up.
Please avoid slippery walkways or conditions that appear unsafe. Your safety is paramount!
If you can, try to canvass when people are more likely to be home – ideally early evenings or weekends.
If possible, have small bills and change available for those making cash donations.
If you would prefer, you can canvass your place of work, worship or in your groups and clubs.
