Registered Democrats in South Hadley will hold a caucus at the South Hadley Public Library, which is fully handicap accessible, on Saturday, May 16, 2015, to elect ten delegates (five male; five female) and four alternates to the 2015 Massachusetts Democratic Convention. Registration begins at 12:30 and closes at 1:00 p.m. at which time the caucus will begin.

The caucus is open to all Democrats who were registered as of January 31, 2015, in South Hadley, and the South Hadley Democratic Town Committee warmly welcomes participants.

The South Hadley Democratic Town Committee meets on a regular basis, and meeting dates, time and location are posted at the Town website.
