2020 State Convention

The 2020 MassDems Nominating Convention will vote on candidates for the US Senate ahead of the September primary. Candidates must receive at least 15% support from convention delegates in order to be on the primary ballot, and the candidate who wins the majority of votes will receive the endorsement of the convention. The Convention is also an important opportunity for Democrats across Massachusetts to come together to unite behind our shared values and organize to win up and down the ballot.

The Convention will be held at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell on May 30, 2020.
