Each election, the Young Democrats of Massachusetts supports candidates who have demonstrated leadership in advancing the values of our members and championed issues most critical to young people in the Commonwealth. We are proud of our strong history of advancing Democratic victories across Massachusetts in local, regional and statewide elections, and look forward to working hard to do so in 2012. (Learn more about our efforts in the 2010 and 2011 campaigns.)
2012 Endorsement Process
For the 2012 endorsements, the Board of the Young Democrats of Massachusetts will vote based on recommendations from our regional chapters and the YDM Political Committee. Endorsements will be made on a rolling basis. Once a determination has been made, the Young Democrats of Massachusetts will concentrate efforts on putting “Youth Boots on the Ground.” Through this program, with each endorsement across the state, we will tap into our over two thousand strong membership and mobilize youth contingents in the field to canvass voters on the candidate’s behalf.
Act now! All campaigns wishing to receive a YDM endorsement, and our official support, are encouraged to complete the candidate questionnaire below. Please note, once you begin the electronic submission, you must complete the entire questionnaire. Incomplete questionnaires cannot be saved. If you wish, you can complete a paper copy of the YDM 2012 Endorsement Questionnaire and then submit your answers below.
For more information about endorsements or to get involved in the YDM Political Committee, please email YDM Political Director Leland Cheung.
