|Massachusetts Democratic State Convention, Worcester, MA, June 3-4|
The Democratic State Convention is less than a month away. In the hybrid format this year, Delegates will vote on amendments and resolutions to the Charter of the State Party in advance of the Convention, and during the Convention will participate in endorsement voting of statewide candidates. Delegates to the Convention should watch their email for communications from the Massachusetts Democratic Party throughout this month.
Volunteers are needed to help run a successful convention – if you are interested in volunteering for the Convention, MassDems would like to hear from you! You can choose to volunteer virtually or in person and you can select your shift. Trainings will be held online leading up to the event. For more information and to sign up, click here.

April Meeting Review – Candidates Speak and Nomination Papers are Signed!
We had great attendance for our April 9 WDCC meeting with many more candidates than we anticipated joining us to address the group, and most importantly, to collect signatures for their nomination papers! It’s been a big project for candidates to get signatures this year, so your effort to attend and sign papers for as many candidates as possible showed that Woburn Democrats are working to get Democrats on the ballot!
