Useful Information for Canvassers
Please visit the Action Network discussion board for last minute updates.
Please remember to bring appropriate clothing (including rain gear and umbrella, if necessary), comfortable shoes, water, snack, a fully charged mobile device, battery pack (if using your cell phone GPS for canvass or MiniVan), and sunscreen. Please check the weather (www.weather.gov or other site) and dress accordingly.
Where Should I Leave My Car?
If you are not meeting someone at their home or a T stop, find a common place to meet. Cafes/coffee shops and public libraries are a good option. We recommend an indoor place, so folks can hang out and stay warm and read, if the driver is running late.
T stops are a good place to meet, if you are meeting car-free folks. A lot of Boston-area folks pickup riders at Porter Square Books (next to Porter Square Books in Porter Square).
Park and Ride commuter lots are another option. If you RSVP for an Action Network event, you will be connected to an online discussion board, and can discuss rideshare/carpool options.
Don’t drive, or have a car? Check out public transit options in travel resources.

Got an App for That?
Learn more about MiniVan, the canvassing app, used by the ME-02 and NY-19 campaign offices. As of 9/20/2018, New Hampshire is not using MiniVan.
