Holliston--Democrats in Holliston will hold a caucus to elect delegates to the Massachusetts Democratic Party’s 2014 Nominating Convention on Saturday, February 8 at 10:00 am in the Selectmen’s Room (Rm. 105) at Town Hall, 703 Washington St. Doors will close promptly at 10:15. The caucus is open to the public and press but only Holliston Democrats registered as of January 31, 2014 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).
Holliston Democrats will vote to elect 8 delegates and 3 alternate delegates to represent them at the convention. The DTC chair attends ex officio. Those not elected as a delegate or alternate, who meet the qualifications, can apply to be an add-on delegate in the following categories: youth, minority or disabled.
The 2014 convention will be a nominating convention. Statewide candidates who receive 15% of delegate votes at the convention will be on the Democratic Primary ballot in September 2014. Holliston DTC Chair Beth Greely said, “Becoming a delegate is a great way for people to get involved in representing our community and casting votes for candidates they feel have what it takes to lead Massachusetts into the future.” She went on to encourage all Holliston Democrats to consider participating in next month’s caucus.
This year’s convention will take place Saturday, June 14 at the DCU Center in Worcester.
