Goldwater Campaign Door Hanger, 1964

Description
Door hanger left by an election canvasser campaigning for Republican Barry Goldwater in 1964.
Going door to door to canvass undecided, indifferent, and lazy voters is a time-honored tradition. To be effective, canvassing requires feet on the ground, a business-like organization of campaign staff and volunteers. Canvassing has persisted well into the television and Internet age, guided by predictive models to determine how to turn out the vote and win elections.
