WILMINGTON, MA — Democrats in Wilmington will be holding a caucus on Monday, June 1 at 7pm at the Wilmington Fourth of July Building (142 Middlesex Avenue) to elect 11 delegates and 4 alternates to the 2015 Massachusetts Democratic Convention, where Democrats from across the state will gather to meet fellow activists and hear from elected officials. The convention will be held on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at the MassMutual Center in Springfield.
“This convention will be unique as we build on experiences from many competitive elections these past few years and look to strengthen the party for the future,” said Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman, Senator Tom McGee. “Caucuses are an important step in growing our party engagement at the local level.”
The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Wilmington, and the Democratic Committee welcomes participants. Delegates will be divided equally between men and women, and all ballots will be written and secret. Youth, minorities, and people with disabilities who are not elected as delegates or alternates may apply to be “add-on” delegates. The Fourth of July Building is handicapped accessible. Details on the rules can be found at http://www.massdems.org.
The committee normally meets on the first Monday of the month at 7pm at Wilmington Community Television (10 Waltham Street).
