What is Canvassing?

Definition: To solicit political support or to determine opinions or sentiments. To seek votes. A personal solicitation of votes or survey the public opinion. -- Webster’s Dictionary

Why is canvassing important?

If we are to elect Democrats we must organize our community earlier than ever. The best way to organize is Face to face voter contact. That is the most effective way to meet people, exchange information, and make an impression for the Democratic Party. You can get a walking list from the Oklahoma State Democratic Party, or your county party, it will contain house-by-house information in terms of registered voters, party affiliation, and whether or not they have voted in the last four elections (including local elections). This will tell you who the registered Democrats in your precinct are – and which houses may not have any registered voters. Make sure you follow through on all requests for help. If you don’t know the answers to questions, say, "I don’t know, but I will find out and get back to you." You can always call the OPD for help with your questions or any questions your neighbors might have. Canvassing is one of the most important contributions a volunteer can make.
