Canvassing Bootcamp

Mike McCabe is longtime government watchdog, grassroots activist and author who is running for Governor of Wisconsin.

It's GO time! In the next few weeks we need to knock doors in every community to let people know about Mike and identify who we want to turnout in the August 14th primary.  Please join with other volunteers in your area as we kickoff our local canvassing activity.

At this canvassing bootcamp, you'll learn how to facilitate a conversation that will get people excited to vote for Mike and a better tomorrow for our state.  You'll also learn what questions to ask to identify and mobilize supporters while making the most of your time.

We'll show you how to use Ecanvasser on your smartphone or tablet to make the process fun and easy (paper forms will also be available).  You'll get to practice what you learn during the training and again afterward as we pair up and take it to the streets for an hour of actual canvassing.  Here is the agenda:

12:00 - 1:00 am - Optionally arrive early for lunch or to get help logging into and installing Ecanvasser
 1:00 - 1:30 am - Canvassing 101: Purpose and Tactics
 1:30 - 1:40 pm - Persuasion Practice Breakout
 1:40 - 2:20 pm - Canvassing 201: Using Ecanvasser Mobile
 2:20 - 2:30 pm - Data Collection Practice Breakout
 2:30 - 3:30 pm - Take it to the streets (take turns in pairs)

To RSVP and get invited to use Ecanvasser, please send an email to with the subject line C702Ashland.

Now is our chance to elect a governor who will represent the people, not the powerful big money interests.  But we need YOUR help!  Will you join us?
