Answer is, it depends on the constituency. Whether it is rural, lots of compact estates, full of flats etc. A lot also depends on the deliverers and the speed they can walk. There are approximately 35,000 homes in most constituencies and on average a deliverer can do 100 an hour.
So a just a small question of finding 350 man hours…and some may even do this more than once in an election campaign.
It does sound a lot but again it depends on how big the local party is, how many activists, how many activists are prepared to deliver to more than just a couple of streets. Bromsgrove Lib Dems are not a large local party but luckily its activity rate is high as a percentage of its membership, although I am pulling out all the stops with my mum, wife, mother in law and friends all giving a hand.
As the candidate I’m doing a fair bit of deliveries but my primary role is to meet people and organisations so they get to know me, I can understand their concerns and help them where possible now. However, how I do in the elections will be firmly down to the legwork the deliverers have put in, so thanks in advance team!
