This is from a news podcast.

THOMAS HALL: I do a lot of doors, and I do a lot of yard signs to get our message out. But right now we're kind of in a holding pattern to see where we should be putting these signs. Obviously, we don't want to create further confusion to the voters.

I wonder what 'do a lot of doors' means in the above context.

My sense is that it means 'visit many houses'.

Am I right?

You are correct. I would understand this expression, in the context of political canvassing, to be shorthand for

I do a lot of knocking on people's front doors
