Deep Canvassing Training and Calls

Do you want to have meaningful, issue-based conversations that identify what matters most to voters? Research has shown that deep canvassing is a highly effective persuasion technique.

This is a great time to learn and practice deep canvassing, which Swing Blue Alliance will be using throughout the 2022 campaigns. After you complete this mandatory training, you can help US Representative Chris Pappas' team recruit volunteers, learn about voters' concerns, and hone messaging for the campaign. We’re calling now and plan to knock on doors in the future, given good weather and COVID safety.

  • Find emails
  • Search for emails on a phone versus desktop PC
  • Decide what to look for and where to look
  • Use advanced search
  • Archive emails (and why you should)

Attend the February 12 training and get answers to these questions about Google Docs:
