Multiply the effectiveness of our effort with the MiniVan Smart Phone App. Although paper canvassing materials are available, using the MiniVan app on your Android or I-Phone means we don’t need extra volunteers to print lists and input the results of your canvassing. MiniVan takes 5 minutes to learn and is super user friendly and helpful. Just download the MiniVan app from Google Play or the Apple Store, and we’ll show you the rest.
