Doorstep Campaigning Resources

Knocking on doors or telephoning and talking to voters is at the heart of what we do as local campaigners. Talking to voters is important not only for getting Labour’s message across, but also for gathering crucial data about voting intentions and the issues people are concerned about. We need that information to make sure our vote turns out on polling day, and to build relationships with people who aren’t Labour supporters yet and who we need to persuade to vote Labour to win.

By regularly talking to local people we can build real relationships in the communities we seek to serve, identify the issues local people care about and turn those into effective local Labour campaigns likely to motivate and persuade more people to support us.

You can generate quick and easy to use Voter ID sheets to run door-knocking and record the information you get through Contact Creator. If you want to use a smartphone, you and your door-knockers can record the information via our Doorstep App. Local members can also get involved in phone canvassing from their own home using DialogueInsight allows you to make sense of the data and run a well-targeted data driven campaign.

Here you can find briefings and guides for campaigners organising and leading doorstep campaign sessions, from using Contact Creator and the Doorstep App to tips on making your sessions effective and safe.
