2022 Pennsylvania Canvassing Materials

Hello Canvassers!

Thanks for helping keep Pennsylvania Blue!

General prep:

  • Launch time: usually 11 am (we recommend getting there at about 10:45).  See your confirmation message for exact times and starting location.  If you’re starting from State Street in Harrisburg, PAY THE PARKING METER, even on Saturday.  The ticket writers are very “efficient”.
  • Remember to wear a mask and comfortable shoes.  Bring sunscreen, water, a snack, hat/sunglasses/rain gear (as needed) , and a CHARGED cell phone. Bring a battery phone charger if possible, especially if you don’t have a charger in your car. Bring a bag if you want something to hold materials while canvassing.
  • Download MiniVan app on your phone (instructions below).

Before You Go:

  • A brief and user friendly tutorial (7 1/2 minutes) on how to set up and use MiniVan, the app that tells you what addresses you’ll be canvassing and provides information on the voter you’re talking to.
  • A good backgrounder from Swing Left on how to spark conversations while canvassing. It’s a 22 minute video that’s very helpful.
