It would take us sometimes two hours just to get out of one person's house, because it took us that long to actually convince them that not only was it worth voting, but worth voting against the incumbents. Admittedly we were a small group, but even a larger group would have issues making door-to-door an efficient process.
Additionally, my brother used to do door-to-door business in the area for a while, and unfortunately many low voter turnout areas are not the greatest in terms of safety. Knocking on some doors actually got him threatened, and once got a gun pointed at him, before he even had a chance to say two words.
I do think it's a good idea to have person-to-person interaction, but I think the best way to do it is host a single event or meeting very close by to the area of interest and advertise within that area, then maybe knock on a couple of doors just to spread the word around. When door-to-door became inefficient, we decided to host meetings at the municipal library. That was much more efficient and almost as effective.
Long rant just to throw in my two cents.
