Democrats in Watertown will be holding a caucus in the Watertown Savings Bank Room of the Watertown Free Public Library on Sunday, March 13 at 2 p.m. to elect 23 delegates and four alternates to the 2016 Massachusetts Democratic Convention, where Democrats from across the commonwealth will gather to meet fellow activists and hear from elected officials. The convention will be held on Saturday, June 4, 2016 at the Tsongas Center in Lowell.
“This year’s caucuses are an opportunity to renew our commitment to the grassroots and elect Democrats up and down the ballot in 2016,” said Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman, Senator Tom McGee. “Together we will be ready to take on the challenges that lay ahead.”
The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Watertown and the Democratic Party warmly welcomes first-time participants. Delegates will be divided equally between men and women, and all ballots will be written and secret. In the spirit of inclusion, youth, minorities, and people with disabilities who are not elected as delegates or alternates may apply to be “add-on” delegates. In addition, those Democrats seeking to attend the September convention who cannot attend the caucus should contact the Town Committee for information on how to run for delegate in absentia. Full details on the rules can be found at www.massdems.org.
The committee normally meets on the last Thursday of the month in the Lower Hearing Room of the Watertown Town Hall. The next meeting will be 7:30 p.m., March 31.
