Inside the Constituency-Level Election Campaign
Constituency-level campaigning is the ground game of federal elections. It’s candidates knocking on doors, workers and volunteers pounding signs into front lawns, and chaotic and spirited 11th-hour get-out-the-vote efforts.

For years, some political observers have dismissed local-level campaigning as a quaint holdover from a time before national leaders’ tours took centre stage in media coverage, and local candidates were subsumed by political party brands and leaders. However, local campaigning is gaining ground once again. The rise of microtargeting electors through social media and the use of big data have centralized local campaigns – but also energized them.

Join us on Tuesday, November 30 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time for a discussion on the vital machinery of local campaigning, with experts Erin Crandall, co-editor of What’s Trending in Canadian Politics? Understanding Transformations in Power, Media, and the Public Sphere; Royce Koop, author of Grassroots Liberals: Organizing for Local and National Politics; and Sarah Stoodley, Minister of Digital Government for Newfoundland and Labrador.

The event will be moderated by IRPP board member Alex Marland, who led the development of our new Policy Options series on local-level campaigning.

A moderated Q&A will follow the discussion. The presentations will be in English, and questions in French are welcome. Attendance is free, but spaces are limited so registration is required.
