Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Early voting and GOTV operations on the day of the election are illegal where I live. Canvassing is just not done.

Where do you live?

GOTV operations on the day of the election, I find nothing sketchy about that.  GOTV does not mean campaign electioneering.  We do have regulations on electioneering on Election Day.  But GOTV on election day usually consists of making phone calls to see if people have voted yet, making people aware of their rights, helping them find their polling location, poll watching, making sure people are able to vote.  By Election Day, no one is going to waste their time asking for people's vote.  They are just focused on getting people to the polls and troubleshooting any problems at the polls.

What does this mean, "Canvassing is just not done."?

Why is that?  How do politicians campaign at the local level?  Just media and public appearances?
