Murrumbidgee Visiting Voters

What is visiting voters?

Visiting voters is when a team of Greens volunteers go out in their neighbourhood to speak to voters on their doorstep and listen to what is important to them. It’s a great way to connect with voters and to hear what issues people care about.

If you're new to visiting voters, you are very welcome! Every session starts with a briefing and training, and you’ll be provided with a script and other resources. You have the option of going visiting with another volunteer, and at the end there is a team debrief to get your feedback.

Before you go visiting voters, we encourage you to attend our Campaign Skills 101 trainings. This training is a workshop on the value of face-to-face conversations, learning how you can start talking with voters at events like this.

Do you want to make a difference this election year? Having meaningful conversations with people is the most effective way to get our message of the Green's vision for the future, and to win votes for our wonderful candidates.  Visiting voters, or door-knocking if you prefer, enables us to spread our message and to get useful information from the community.  Sometimes we can also recruit new volunteers.

So join us when we visit voters in Weston.   We have had good support from Weston in the past and have high hopes of it being even better in the coming Federal and ACT elections.

If you haven't door-knocked before the prospect may seem daunting.  In fact almost all the people that you meet are very pleasant - even those who are strongly opposed to the Greens.  And you may have some very interesting conversations.  It's actually quite enjoyable.  However we can team you up with a buddy if that would make you more comfortable.

We'll start at 1pm with a short briefing at a nearby location at which walk lists will be handed out. Then we will set out on our walks.  At 4pm (or earlier if you need to finish) we will cease our visits and head back for a debrief.  There we will hand in our walk sheets so as to gather all of the information that you have gathered.

Do come if you can.  RSVP now!
