Why Canvassing?

Research shows that person-to-person connections (conversations with voters!) are the key to getting voters to the polls. Indivisible AVL is coordinating two strategies for one-on-one voter outreach:

  • Canvassing - door-to-door canvassing once per month starting this December. We will visit with progressive voters to find out what they care about, make sure they have information about voter ID and election dates/times, and encourage them to go to the polls in March (primaries!) and November 2020.

Join us for training and an amazing statewide canvass on Sunday, December 8th. Details & registration.

  • Empower App - a super easy-to-use phone app that will allow you to have impactful conversations with people you know to get out the vote. Learn more at our November 5th Kick Off or contact us by email for other training dates.
    Does talking to voters sound intimidating? It’s really not hard! We will provide training and scripts, send you out with a buddy, and you will be talking with voters that share similar concerns and values-- no need to convince anyone of anything other than to VOTE!

We’re talking to voters that are concerned about health care, economic justice, climate change, racial equity, the rights of women, immigrant rights and more.

Need proof that it works?

Flip NC, a voter engagement organization based in Durham, increased turnout among “low-propensity” (unlikely to vote), progressive voters by 16% through canvassing efforts. Even when voters weren’t home to talk with canvassers, leaving literature for them increased voter turnout by 4-6%.

NC Wins notes that there are enough progressive voters in Buncombe County, that we could shape the results in key NC races -- voting out Senator Thom Tillis and making sure that Governor Roy Cooper remains in office and continues to lead our state in the right direction.

If we all work at this, we truly can MAKE CHANGE! Join us!
