You can select and area of interest, and volunteers can be as young as 14.

Volunteer needs will be in the following areas:

The 7,000 volunteers who previously signed up were transferred to the new system, DNC organizers say.

The Democratic National Convention will take place in Philadelphia July 25-28, 2016.
