If you are interested in having a role in choosing the next President of the United States and participating in a caucus, this weekend could be your chance if you are a Democrat (Republicans will have to wait a few weeks).
On Saturday, April 9, Massachusetts Democrats will be holding caucuses to choose who will go to Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention to represent either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, and the Clinton representatives will be chosen in Watertown.
The Congressional District Caucuses will be held across the state, with separate locations for each of the main Democratic candidates. For the Fifth Congressional District, the Clinton caucus will be held in the Watertown High School auditorium, 50 Columbia St. in Watertown, while the Sanders caucus will be at Malden High School, 77 Salem St. in Malden.
The caucuses begin at 1 p.m. and any registered Democrat from the congressional district can participate. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. For more information click here.
The Massachusetts Republican Party will hold its Congressional District Caucuses on April 30 at 10 a.m. to choose delegates for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. The location for Watertown residents will be the Natick Elk’s Lodge 1425, 95 Speen Street in Natick.
The GOP has only one location, and participants must pre-register. For more information go here www.massgop.com/delegate.
