Registered Democrats in South Hadley will hold a caucus at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday March 11th to elect seven delegates and four alternates to the 2017 State Democratic Convention.

The caucus is open to Democrats who are registered to vote in South Hadley as of the date of the caucus and the Democratic Town Committee (SH-DTC) warmly welcomes participants. Delegates will be divided equally between men and women and, 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. Candidates must be present at the caucus and must consent to nomination in writing.

The State Democratic Convention will be held on Saturday June 3rd, at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, MA. The Massachusetts Democratic Party platform will be the principal focus of the convention, which also will feature a keynote address by Senator Elizabeth Warren.
