Dover Democrats to Hold Caucus

[ccfic caption-text format="plaintext"]

Democrats in Dover will hold a caucus on Tuesday, March 8 at 7 p.m. at the Dover Town Library, lower level Community Room, 56 Dedham Street, Dover.

Attendees are advised to arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the caucus.

Democrats will elect three delegates and three alternates at the caucus to the 2016 Massachusetts Democratic Convention, where Democrats from across the Commonwealth will gather to adopt a new Action Agenda. The convention will be held on Saturday, June 4 at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell.

“There is much at stake in 2016, as big, outside money targeting our Democratic legislators has already been pledged,” Said Chairman Tom McGee. “Our June convention will focus on building up our Democratic Party’s grassroots around the values and ideas that improve the lives of working Bay Staters—ensuring we send strong Democrats to Beacon Hill, Capitol Hill and the White House.”

The March 8 caucus is open to all Dover Democrats registered to vote as of January 31, 2016, and the Dover Democratic Town Committee welcomes participants. The Dover Town Library Community Room is handicapped accessible.

Delegates will be divided equally between men and women, and 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. Details on the rules can be found at www.massdems.org.
