Arlington Democrats are invited to attend a virtual caucus on Saturday, February 12, at 10 a.m. to elect 40 delegates and 7 alternates to the 2022 Massachusetts Democratic Convention.
At this year’s state convention, planned for Saturday, June 4th at the DCU Center in Worcester, thousands of Democrats from across the state will come together to endorse candidates for statewide office and unite to elect Democrats down the ballot in November of 2022. The convention is planned to be a hybrid convention; delegates will be able to attend in person, or virtually by Zoom.
The caucus is open to all registered and pre-registered Democrats in Arlington. Pre-registered Democrats who will be 16 by February 4, 2022, will be welcome to participate and run as a delegate or alternate.
To participate in the virtual caucus, please use the Zoom registration form at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMud-CuqTgtGt2CPMj5KraEHwHcX1GdpRu7. You will receive a personalized link and passcode to the Zoom caucus in an email, which you’ll need to keep. Our virtual doors will open at 9:30 a.m., and we encourage registrants to arrive early. Everyone who is in the waiting room by 10:15 a.m. will be admitted.
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.
Delegates and alternates will be divided equally between men and women, except that candidates whose gender identity is non-binary can run for delegate without needing to classify themselves as male or female. Candidates must be present at the caucus to be elected (except those serving in the Armed Forces, who must notify the chair of their candidacy before the caucus).
