The Massachusetts Democratic Convention will be held on June 13-14 at the DCU Center in Worcester. At the convention, delegates will vote on Democratic candidates for statewide office, and each candidate must receive at least 15% of the vote to be on the primary ballot in September.
Over the next several weeks, wards and towns around Massachusetts will hold caucuses to elect our delegates to the Convention.
