How can I get involved?

Being politically involved means different things to everyone. It includes voting in elections, joining campaigns, sharing opinions, canvassing with a candidate or elected politician, joining a political party or supporting an Independent.
If you’d like to get some experience knocking doors and talking to people about what matters to them, contact your local representative, I’d love to have a chat with you.
