Appropriate signs for each area of the headquarters.
A card file or computer file of all door-to-door volunteers with
An adequate supply of scratch pads, legal pads, felt tip pens, pencils,
masking tape, rubber bands, paper clips, thumb tacks, scotch tape, and magic
markers for last minute signs.
A First Aid Kit should be handy.
A large map of the District and Precincts.
Make sure you allow enough volunteer time to put together Canvass Kits for
your volunteers. Canvass Kits should include the following:
The script to be delivered at the door
The list of answers to questions which may be asked of volunteers
Complete registration information
Mail registration forms
Absentee ballot applications
Strong piece of cardboard to use as a base for the volunteer to write on
at the door
"Sorry We Missed You" cards. A small card or piece of paper that
indicates you stopped by and they were not at home. Include a phone number
for them to call if interested. Always personally sign the card and leave it
in the door.
Make sure you number each kit and have the volunteer sign for them. When the
kit is returned, mark it off on a sheet. This process will assist you in knowing
who has forgotten to turn in their voter identification sheets.
