Dems to Conduct Neighborhood Canvas

Democrats in Portland and across Maine will take part in a National Canvass on Saturday, April 29, in preparation for the November elections.

Democrats going out to speak with their neighbors (houses of Democrats, Greens, and Unenrolled) will be seeking to accomplish two structural goals for the organization: to measure the current volunteer capacity of their activist network, and to check accuracy of voter files and update them. Canvass leaders will report on how many volunteers participated, the total number of doors hit, and what the overall experience was.

Local Democrats are expected to go out and speak to 25 of their neighbors and confirm or update data such as resident names and addresses, phone numbers, E-mail addresses, and other information.
