First of all, we can promise you’ll get a warm welcome from your local party - you’ll be teamed up with an experienced campaigner to start off with, and they’ll be able to show you the ropes and answer any questions you might have. People do expect us to knock on their doors – especially at election time, and most people are friendly and interested.
It’s a great way to meet fellow members and supporters too, and sessions are often followed by a trip to a café or pub.
There are so many ways you can help, from door knocking to helping in a campaign office. If you’ve already signed up for a campaign session, fantastic - just head along.
If you gave us your phone number, we’ll be giving you a call very soon to check in. If you haven’t already, and you want to find out what’s going on near you, you can also find your nearest campaign event.
Door knocking is about having conversations with voters face to face. It helps us understand what people care about, allows us to talk about how a vote for Labour can make a difference locally and nationally, and crucially, helps us find out which voters are planning to vote Labour on 8 June.
We keep a record of this information, and on polling day, we will visit people again to remind them to vote. Knowing who plans to vote Labour helps us to get an idea of how we are doing, and to plan our resources more effectively.
If you’re not sure door knocking is for you, we’d really encourage you to at least give it a go - there’s never been a more important or exciting time to try!
But there are lots of other ways to help out too. Whether you’re super-organised, a great communicator, or know your local area like the back of your hand, there’ll be a task with your name on it! Our campaign teams will need help making sure the phones are answered and emails replied to, delivering leaflets or prepping leaflet rounds, driving on polling day and much more.
