The following is a press release

***

FRAMINGHAM – Democrats in Framingham will be holding their rescheduled caucus on Sunday March 5, at the Framingham Green, 136 Maynard Road, Framingham, MA, to elect delegates to the 2017 Massachusetts Democratic Convention. The caucus was previously scheduled in February and was postponed because of a snow storm. Doors will open at 6PM for registration, and election of delegates to the state convention will begin at 7 PM. The sign-in deadline for candidates to register will be 7:15 sharp. Candidates and those voting for them must be registered

as Democrats.

The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Framingham, and the Democratic Town Committee welcomes participants. Framingham will elect 36 delegates and 6 alternates. 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. Details of the Democratic Caucus rules can be found at www.massdems.org.

This year, the Massachusetts Democratic Convention will be held Saturday, June 3 at the Tsongas Center at UMass/Lowell. This year’s convention will be an “Issues and Platform Convention” and will feature Forums, organizing workshops, exciting speakers and more.

The Framingham Democratic Town Committee normally meets on the second Sunday evening of the month at the Community Building at Framingham Green, 136 Maynard Road, Framingham, MA 01701. More information on the caucus or the Town Committee is available on the website at www.framinghamdems.org.

There will be no charity collection at this meeting, but at the upcoming Candidates’ Breakfast Forum later in March the Committee will be accepting donations to the ARC of Massachusetts in honor and memory of Susie Spilka, the late sister of Senator Karen Spilka.
