Registered Democrats in Arlington will hold a caucus Saturday, March 2, at 10 a.m. to elect 35 delegates and five alternates to the Massachusetts Democratic Party's 2013 Platform Convention.
Delegates and alternates will be divided equally between men and women. The caucus will take place in the Community Room on the lower level of Robbins Library, at 700 Mass. Ave. Registration for the caucus will begin at 9:30.
In the event of a weather emergency on March 2, the caucus will take place Sunday, March 3, at 3 p.m., also in the Robbins Library Community Room.
This year’s State Convention will take place Saturday, July 13, at the Tsongas Center in Lowell. "At our 2013 convention, the delegates selected by Democrats will debate and adopt our platform for the next four years, catch up and network with other organizers around the Commonwealth, and hear from some exciting future leaders of our party," said Democratic Party Chair John Walsh.
The caucus is open to all registered Democrats (as of Dec. 31, 2012) in Arlington, and the Arlington Democratic Town Committee warmly welcomes all participants. 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 here >>
