Door knocking is one of the most effective and important ways to campaign. Not only are you raising your public profile in a very personal way, you are also seizing the opportunity to learn about and understand the most important issues and concerns of residents and ratepayers. These concerns can be used in future campaign platforms, brochures and media releases.
A good opening line is, ‘Good morning, my name is Joe Smith. I’m door knocking in your neighbourhood today as I’ve decided to stand for council at the coming elections. Are you aware there are council elections happening?’
