Election Review! Holiday Parties & More.

Dear Democrats,

Thanks to the hard work of grassroots activists like you, Democrats mobilized and won big across the country! Were you a part of “Get Out The Vote” efforts? Share your favorite voter contact story from the weekend with us on Twitter here— we’d love to hear them!

Now that the 2019 elections are behind us, we’re looking ahead to 2020. Hosting a holiday party is a great way for town and ward committees to come together to celebrate your successes in 2019 and strategize for next year. We know that winning elections starts and ends at the grassroots level – and that means all of you!

If you’re hosting a holiday party or any other end of year events, be sure to send them to events@massdems.org so we can promote them here in the Dispatch!

Sincerely,

Patrick Coyne
Communications Manager, Massachusetts Democratic Party
