FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Democratic Committee will hold a caucus on Sunday, May 19, 2019, at 7 p.m. to elect registered Democrats as delegates and alternates to the 2019 Massachusetts Democratic State Convention.
This year’s state convention will be held September 14 at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, where thousands of Democrats from across the state will come together to discuss Party business and celebrate our successes as we prepare for upcoming elections.
The caucus is open to all registered and pre-registered Democrats in Framingham. Pre-registered Democrats who are youth who will be 16 years of age by May 11, 2019, will be allowed to participate and run as a delegate or as an alternate. Framingham can elect 34 delegates and 6 alternates to the Convention.
In addition to the 34 Delegates, registered and pre-registered youth, minorities, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ individuals who are not elected as a delegate or alternate may apply to be an add-on delegate at the caucus or at www.massdems.org.
There will be a short business meeting following the caucus, with details of that meeting forthcoming next weekend.
The FDC normally meets on the third Sunday evening of the month. All those attending are asked to park their cars at the lot at 1071 Worcester Rd., which is on the corner of Maynard Rd and Rte. 9.
