FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Democratic Committee will hold a caucus on Sunday March 8, at 2 p.m. to elect registered Democrats as delegates and alternates to the 2020 Massachusetts Democratic State Convention.
The caucus will be held at Framingham High School, with doors opening at 1 p.m., and all registration complete by 2:15 p.m.
This year’s state convention will be held May 30 at the Tsongas Arena at UMass Lowell, where thousands of Democrats from across the state will come together to discuss Party business and vote to endorse a candidate for the United States Senate seat currently held by Senator Ed Markey, and celebrate our successes as strategy 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 and who will be 16 years of age by February 15, 2020, will be allowed to participate and run as a delegate or as an alternate provided that they are pre-registered by the time of the caucus and must provide proof of their pre-registration.
Framingham will 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.
