Canvass Near You: Be Part of Grassroots Campaigning

The value of grassroots work in a campaign is backed up by the math. The impact of a strong grassroots campaign can be a 3-6% boost in the final polls. If we used the 2008 turnout numbers. where almost 3 million Massachusetts voters came to the polls, that would mean 90,000 -180,000 more votes for Elizabeth Warren!  In the 2010 Special Election, Scott Brown won by only 110,000 votes. In 2012, we can win back that margin by building out our grassroots campaign today. With only 50 more votes per precinct, we can overtake that margin in 2012. If we engage with our friends and neighbors, door-by-door, street-by-street, and neighborhood-by-neighborhood, we can win back the United States Senate seat and reelect President Obama.

 

This weekend many events are taking place all across the state.  Below is a list alphabetically by towns.

Quick Tips for you Canvassing

  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothing
  • Work in pairs when possible for safety, support, and fun
  • As always when canvassing any neighborhood, if you aren't comfortable walking up to a particular house, skip it. Remember, safety first.
  • Make sure you have a script, and be familiar with what you are saying. Practice it a few times before canvassing.

 

The most important thing to remember is that you are making a difference just talking to a voter!  You want to get an ID and recruit as many volunteers as possible, but even if a voter remains undecided or is supporting the opponent, your conversation makes an impact on the future of the campaign. All information is valuable information! Supporter or opponent, each contact is another building block in creating the necessary votes to win.
