As candidates and their teams face the shortest possible writ allowed under the Election Act at 36 days, these next few weeks are going to be hectic so the more volunteers we can secure, the less stretched our team will feel.
There are a variety of positions that need to be filled on a campaign team, but there are also various ways you can physically engage in this process- from walking neighbourhood streets knocking on doors to calling residents from the comfort of your home. Sharing our posts on your social networks is another way you can be involved, or good old fashion word of mouth is a critical tool for candidates as well.
You can commit 2 minutes or 200 hours, but with the threat of the Delta variant, it’s important that your involvement doesn’t amount to exhaustion which might put your immune system at risk.
Here are a list of duties and their physical requirements
- Knocking on doors, talking to #HESC residents (physical bodies needed anywhere within the riding)
