The ACT election on 15 October is getting close. Our campaign is well underway, and over the next few weeks we need to continue getting out into the community to support our candidates for the seat of Murrumbidgee.
It’s important that we increase our representation in the Assembly in order to promote the progressive policies of the Greens, and it can be done if we get behind our hard-working candidates. Our hopes are high for lead candidate Caroline Le Couteur.
Having meaningful conversations with people is the most effective way to get our message of the Green's vision for the future. 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.
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 collect all of the information that you have gathered.
Please assist if you can. Every vote can count in what may be a close contest for an Assembly seat.
