Creating a Canvass List

Your first step for voter identification is to create your canvass list.  You can then use this list is a phone bank or for door-to-door canvassing.

When creating a door-to-door canvass, there are two ways to create your lists.

  1. Create a Canvass List by Poll
  2. Create a List Using Turf Cutter

When setting up a phone bank, these types of lists would be most beneficial to you:

  1. Reconfirming Past Liberals
  2. Past Voters
  3. Take a look at some of the other types of Lists you can create

You will also always want to ensure that your lists exclude people that are already canvassed and that your lists do not include people that are already on other lists.

  2. Removing People that live in a Household we have already canvassed

For calling lists, you will also always want to ensure that you household your list so that you do not call the same household various times
