The Massachusetts Democratic Party, at its convention on June 7, adopted an Action Agenda that includes the following quote:
INVOLVEMENT AND OUTREACH IN OUR POLITICAL PROCESS
We know that public cynicism and disillusionment with politics creates a lack of participation, which is a threat to our democratic system. Therefore, we call for:
A continued commitment to comprehensive, publicly funded campaign finance reform.
Expanded voter registration efforts and the evaluation of alternative voting methods, such as instant run off voting to increase voter participation, especially among 18-35 year olds.
