Brendan Tobin, Head of Growth, Ecanvasser, headquartered in Cork, Ireland, has seen the development of new ways for field staff and volunteers to canvass potential voters, as more people are hesitant to answer a knock on their door.  With an emphasis on the possibilities for the 2020 campaign, Brendon reminds us that canvassing is a great way to build relationships with voters, gather and quickly analyze critical data about what constituents are thinking, and determine commitment of the base and how likely they are to be persuaded. He also describes how candidates around the globe are using canvassing apps to reach out to facilitate human interaction wherever people gather or in high foot traffic areas where people on the street can be queried about campaign issues as well as neighborhood concerns.
