Canvassing is the process of attempting to win votes by contacting voters directly. The candidate or a campaign worker typically contacts voters either door-to-door or by telephone. Canvassing is conducted increasingly via email or the Internet.[1]

Another important purpose of canvassing is to determine whether or not certain ideas or policies will be popular among voters.[2]
