Try to avoid sending people down the length of main roads, instead think
in terms of blocks of streets. Avoid people crossing busy roads if at
all possible. It wastes time and can be dangerous. The last you need

area identified by letters, A, B, C etc. If you are using a computerised
system you can use a system whereby you create an X area. This area
contains all the streets or sub-streets where you have no declared supporters.
Postcodes in some places can contain only a single house so this it
is not unusually to have some postcodes where you have no known supporters,
especially if your canvassing was incomplete. As your supporters vote
during the day if all your support in a postcode area have voted then
move that area into X area. This means that your computer does not waste
processing time looking at these roads or parts of roads during the
rest of election day.
