June 17 in-person caucus for State Convention

Arlington Democrats are invited to attend a caucus on Saturday, June 17, at 10 a.m. to elect 36 delegates and 6 alternates to the 2023 Massachusetts Democratic Convention. The location is the function room at the back of Donut Villa, 319 Broadway (formerly Common Ground). Registration in advance is not required, but we ask you to register using this Google form so that we know how many to expect.

We have a special guest: our Governor, Maura Healey, will kick off the caucus at 10, welcoming local Democrats.

Doors will open for check-in at 9:30 a.m., and we encourage attendees to arrive early. Everyone who arrives by 10:15 a.m. will be admitted.

At this year’s state convention, planned for Saturday, September 23 in person at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, thousands of Democrats from across the state will come together to discuss the critical issues facing the people of the Commonwealth and set an agenda for the party in the year ahead. (Note that Arlington’s Town Day is also on Sept. 23.)

Democrats in Arlington who have registered or pre-registered to vote by May 23, 2023, may vote and be elected as delegates or alternates during the caucus. Pre-registered Democrats must be 16 years old by May 23, 2023.

Youth (age 16 to 35), people with disabilities, people of color, and members of the LGBTQ+ community not elected as delegates or alternates are encouraged to apply to be add-on delegates at the caucus or by visiting massdems.org/massdems-convention.
