This chapter examines the effectiveness of door-to-door canvassing that targeted different ethnoracial populations; rural, suburban, and urban voters; and voters in different electoral contexts. The analysis is based on data from 117 door-to-door field experiments conducted by participating California Votes Initiative (CVI) groups from June 2006 through November 2008. The results show significant variation in the effectiveness of CVI groups' door-to-door efforts, an unavoidable consequence of the richness of the sociocultural interactions that occurred at the targeted voters' doorsteps.

Keywords:   California Votes Initiative, get-out-the-vote campaigns, sociocultural interactions, door-to-door canvassing, ethnoracial populations
