Eve of Election
day, or more likely the evening before the election, you will have reached
a stage where you can do no more canvassing, any final day leaflets
have been delivered and your campaign team are taking a well-earned
break. Now the real work can start.
thing to do is prepare what are called knock-up sheets. These are lists
of the voters, by road, who, during canvassing, said that they were
going to vote for your candidate. This information is taken from the
canvass returns. If you are using a computerised system it may not be
necessary to print out the knock-up sheets at this time.
way you will need to analyse the canvass returns and break your polling
district(s) into smaller areas that a knocker-up
can visit in one trip. There is more about this later, but basically
these areas should be area that a person can walk around. They will
usually cover more than one street but the streets will be geographically
adjacent which may mean they are not in the order they appear on the
electoral role. If Abbot Road is next to Wyndham Way they should be
in the same knock-up area.
