Calling all Holliston Democrats 

Registered Democrats in Holliston will hold a caucus to elect delegates to the 2018 Massachusetts Democratic State Convention on Saturday, February 10 at 10:15 am in the Selectmen’s Room (Room 105) at Holliston Town Hall, 703 Washington Street.

Caucus registration will begin at 9:45 a.m. The caucus is open to the public and press, but only Holliston registered Democrats are eligible to participate in the voting. Delegates must be present at the caucus to be elected (except persons serving in the U.S. Armed Forces who have notified their chair of intention to run by 2/1/18). 

The caucus is open to all registered and pre-registered Democrats in Holliston. Pre-registered Democrats who will be 18 by September 18, 2018 will be allowed to participate and run as a delegate or alternate. Same-day registration is also allowed.  All Holliston Democrats are encouraged to participate. 

Holliston will be voting to elect eight delegates and four alternate delegates to represent them at the convention. Those not elected as a delegate or alternate and who meet the qualifications can apply to be an add-on delegate in the following categories: youth, minority, disabled, or LGBTQ.

This year’s Massachusetts Democratic State Convention will take place Friday and Saturday, June 1 and 2 at the DCU Center in Worcester where thousands of Democrats will come together to endorse Democratic candidates for statewide office, including constitutional officers and gubernatorial candidates. State-wide candidates who receive 15% of delegate votes are eligible to be on the Democratic Primary ballot in September 2018.

Caucus attendees requiring disability related accommodations please contact Lisa at 508-208-5491 or lisabbk@verizon.net by February 8.

For more information about the caucus, convention, or the Holliston Democratic Town Committee, contact DTC Chair Lisa Kaplan at lisabbk@verizon.net.
