    It might be worth checking. The spirit of the service element of the DofE is that you give something back to the community. Unless you plan to go out with your local councillor picking up litter and pointing at pot holes for their local gumph, I am not sure if delivering leaflets in a bid to gain power is something you might class as a service to the community.

    Good luck!
