Wellesley Community Center

Annual Caucus

Democrats in Wellesley will be holding their Annual Caucus on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 beginning at 7 p.m. at the Wellesley Community Center.  Registration will begin at 6:45 p.m.  The purpose of the Caucus is to elect 16 delegates and 4 alternates to the 2017 Massachusetts State Democratic Convention.

The Convention will be held on Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell, 300 Martin Luther King, Jr. Way, Lowell, Massachusetts.  This is a great opportunity to meet fellow activists and to hear from elected officials.  Previous year’s speakers have included Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Ed Markey, Congressman Joe Kennedy, Attorney General Maura Healey, and various candidates for elected offices.  The main topic will be the MassDems platform, which will be updated for the first time since 2013, in addition to the many issues surrounding the 2016 election of Donald Trump.

The Caucus is open to all Democrats registered to vote in Wellesley, and the Wellesley Democratic Town Committee welcomes all participants.  This year, voter registration will be available at the Caucus for those who are not yet registered Democrats and who would like to participate.  In addition, 16- and 17-year olds who will be 18 by September 11, 2018 and who have already pre-registered or do so at the Caucus as Democrats will be eligible to participate in the Caucus and to run for election as a delegate or alternate to the State Convention.  There is a $75 fee/$50 for students/seniors/those with disabilities (with waiver for hardships), which must be paid online by April 7th by those elected to attend the Convention. Those voting must be present at the Caucus; there is no absentee or proxy voting.

If you are interested in running for a delegate spot, please let us know by e-mailing chair@wellesleydems.org; this will help us with our planning and expedite the Caucus.

Immediately following the conclusion of the Caucus, the Wellesley Democratic Town Committee will hold its monthly meeting.
