Re: Changing minds not required

Sounds just like what I used to do as a student canvasser back in the 80s knocking on halls of residence doors .... at the time various people were confused as to why after asking who they intended to vote for I didn't try to persuade them to change their allegiance - I explained the main task was identifying your party's supporters and then making sure they got out to vote on the day. (Also, I had a selection of leaflets to distribute over the campaign - not enough to put one of each by each door so I selected which leaflet was more likely to be relevant to "idealistic" first year and which to "job hunting" final students and distributed tehm accordingly ...so I suppose I was guilty of evil targetting messaging as well!)
