    The Obama campaign team in Massachusetts is working hard to get ready for our Presidential primary on Tuesday, March 6th. Known around the country as Super Tuesday, the primary is a big day here in the Bay State, and over the weekend, volunteers hosted more than 70 events to reach out to voters across the state.

    From a phone bank at Harvard University, to door-to-door canvasses in Springfield, Worcester, and Lowell, Massachusetts volunteers had one-on-one conversations in their community to remind people to vote in the primary and invite them to join in upcoming volunteer activities.

    Shirley in Jamaica Plain led two canvasses over the weekend and was inspired by the volunteer turnout:

    “We’re building strong teams in my community. At each meeting or event we have, I meet new people who are passionate about seeing positive change in their neighborhood and that are ready to work to make sure the President is re-elected in November. The volunteers in my community are so inspiring.”
