The Belmont Democratic Town Committee will hold a party caucus at Town Hall to elect 18 delegates and 4 alternates for the 2018 Massachusetts Democratic Convention. Those wishing to vote in the caucus must be in line by 1:30 p.m. The caucus begins at 2 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 11.
This year’s state convention will be held on June 1 and 2, at the DCU Center in Worcester, where thousands of Democrats from across the Commonwealth will come together to endorse Democratic candidates for statewide office, including Constitutional Officers and gubernatorial candidates.
The Caucus is open to all registered and pre-registered Democrats in Belmont, and the Democratic Committee welcomes all eligible participants. Any person who is not 18 years of age at the time of the caucus but will be 18 by the 2018 Primary date on Sept. 11 may pre-register to vote with their City or Town Clerk. 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, either at their caucus or online at www.massdems.org
The Belmont Democratic Town Committee typically meets on the first Thursday of the month in Town Hall. For more information on the caucus or the committee please contact the Secretary, Mary Bradley, at email@example.com or check us out on Facebook.
