Endorsement Process


Electing progressives to offices at every level, all across the Commonwealth, is critical to implementing progressive policy solutions. Progressive Mass typically endorses for statewide offices and for legislative offices on the state and national levels, and weighs in on statewide ballot questions. Endorsements for local races are delegated to chapters. To find a chapter near you, visit Our Chapters.

While it has become fashionable to call oneself a “progressive” here in Massachusetts, the members of Progressive Mass believe we must get every candidate on record on our issues. Accordingly, Progressive Mass requires all candidates seeking an endorsement to complete a comprehensive questionnaire relating to the priorities in our Legislative Agenda and Progressive Platform. Interested in seeking an endorsement? Email elections@progressivemass.com.

Our Elections & Endorsement Committee identifies races of interest and makes recommendations to our membership. But as Progressive Mass is a member-driven organization, it is up to our members whether or not we endorse (and whom we endorse) in any given race, and a candidate must get 60% of the vote to secure an endorsement.

Anyone who becomes a member before our member ballot is sent out via email is eligible to vote. Not yet a member? Become one here.
