DISPATCH: Weekend of Action, Rallies, Fundraisers, & More!

Dear Democrats,

18 days out from Election Day, but millions have voted already. Well over a million mail in ballots have been sent out to Massachusetts voters, and this weekend kicks off almost two weeks of early in-person voting. With options like vote by mail, early vote, and in person voting, every day from now until November 3 is Election Day.

Democrats across the country are requesting and returning 50% more ballots than Republicans, but Donald Trump and his allies in Massachusetts will do whatever they can to keep people from the polls. Make a plan to vote today. Cast your ballot as soon as you can. To learn about voting options this fall, visit massdems.org/vote.

As always, send your events to events@massdems.org and have a safe and healthy weekend!

All the best,

Allison Mitchell
Communications Director
Massachusetts Democratic Party


Ideas for Committees

Join the MobilizeMA coordinated campaign this coming Saturday and Sunday for a Weekend of Action with your committee!

This Saturday marks the first day of Early Voting in Massachusetts, so this weekend we will be calling MA voters to make sure they’re supporting Democrats up and down the ticket before they cast their ballots.

On Sunday, along with calling MA voters, we are also hosting phonebanks for critical out of state races. Sign up at edmarkey.us/weekendofaction.
