Franklin Democrats to elect delegates to state convention

Registered Democrats in Franklin will be holding a caucus at the Union Street Grill on Monday, March 13th at 7:00 PM to elect 15 delegates and 4 alternates for the 2017 Massachusetts Democratic Convention, where Democrats from across Massachusetts will gather to adopt a new Party Platform. The convention will be held on Saturday, June 3rd at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell.

"Our caucuses are a great opportunity to strengthen our Party's organization and to welcome new participant who are interested in getting involved in our Party", commented Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford. "Delegates will be voting on the Party Platform in Lowell, and we want to make sure that every Democrat has a voice in this process. This is a time for all of us to come together and speak to our shared Democratic values."

This caucus is open to all registered and pre-registered Democrats in Franklin and the Democratic Committee welcomes all eligible participants. Any person who is not 18 years of age at the time of the caucus but will be 18 by the 2018 Primary date (September 11, 2018) may pre-register to vote with their Town Clerk. Delegates will be divided equally between men and women, and all ballots will be written in secret. 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, either at their caucus or on line at www.massdems.com

The Franklin Democratic Town Committee normally meets on the third Monday of the month at the Union Street Grill.
