The Test Valley Liberal Democrats rely on volunteers to win elections across our area. From delivering leaflets to knocking on doors, volunteers are at the heart of our movement. Sign up today to help us beat the Conservatives and win for local people.
Here's just a few ways you can get involved:
Delivering leaflets is the primary way we reach voters with our message. While modern technologies such as email and social media can help reach some people, only leaflets through doors guarantee that our message will find its way into voters’ hands. Usually the ask is that you deliver in your own local area, so there’s no need to go too far. In ‘peacetime’ we ask deliverers to help for about 1 hour a month, although in election times this will likely increase.
We knock on doors to find out what issues are important to voters, so that we can help them with their concerns. We also do this to gain an insight into the level of our support, so that we can understand how well our campaigns are going. Canvassers operate in teams and usually go out a couple of hours a month during peacetime. Canvassing is a great way to get to know other Lib Dems and also fellow voters across the Test Valley.
Making phone calls:
Like canvassing, we use phone calls to find out about important issues to voters and to gain an insight into the level of our current support. We also use phoning to stay in contact with our members and supporters, ensuring that they are okay, encouraging them to help in upcoming campaigns, and making sure they renew their membership.
Helping with clerical work:
Our deliverers and canvassers couldn't do what they do effectively without a great clerical team behind them. Our clerical volunteers bundle together leaflets and letters for delivery, write and stuff envelopes, as well as all sorts of assorted tasks!
