  • Walk lists are split between even and odd sides of the street. You can go up a street on one side and then come back down the other, or you and a partner can go up opposite sides of the road.
  • The door hangers must never touch the mailbox. This is federal law.
  • You can ignore no soliciting signs. Campaigns are exempt from "soliciting."
  • If a sign says no handbills or politics, honor it and do not leave anything.
  • If you are uncomfortable with a property, don’t go on it.
  • If there is a For Sale sign, skip the house.
  • If there is a screen door and you can leave the hanger on it, put it there.
  • If there is no way to hang it on a screen door, open the screen door and hang it on the inside handle.
  • If you can’t hang it on the door, place it under something like a doormat.
  • You do not need to mark anything on the sheets.
  • If you have a yellow campaign t-shirt, please to wear it. If you don't have one, wear the brightest yellow you own.
  • I recommend going out in daylight hours to not scare people.
  • Wear comfortable shoes, dress in layers, and bring water.
  • Return any extras to me when you are done (2411 Earlmont).

Door Hanging Examples

Levered handles are the easiest to hang on.

 

 

Start with the hanger upside down for open-bottom handles.

 

 

You can sometimes get the hanger to stay on a thumb latch.

 

 

It's okay to open a screen door to put it on a door handle (but you don't have to if that makes you uncomfortable).

 

 

While you can't put it on a mailbox, you can use the newspaper hook under a mailbox.

 

 

Sometimes a screen door is locked and you can't hang anything from it. Use a doormat, or if necessary just leave it on the ground.
