ALDC has produced a library of materials you can download to help you organise your campaign.
Deliverer and Clerical Instructions
When dropping off leaflets or stuffing with local volunteers it is best practice to include an instruction note. Even if they are experienced volunteers it is a nice touch and provides them with a contact number in case they have any questions or issues completing what you have given them.
