Calling all Holliston Registered Democrats:
2021 Caucus Announced

Holliston Democratic Town Committee members will host a virtual caucus to elect delegates to the 2021 Massachusetts Democratic State Convention. The Zoom caucus will convene at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 10 and all Holliston Democrats are encouraged to participate. Phone credentials will also be posted on the Holliston DTC event calendar.

Caucus registration and the Zoom waiting room will be open at 9:30 a.m. We will be checking voter registration status of attendees as they're admitted. Our "virtual" doors will close at 10:15. Everyone in the waiting room at 10:15 will be admitted, but none thereafter. 

The caucus is open to the public and press, but only Holliston registered and preregistered Democrats are eligible to participate in the voting. Pre-registered Democrats must be 16 years or older to participate. Same-day registration is allowed. 

Delegates must be present at the caucus to be elected (with the exception of persons serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, with prior notice). Holliston will be voting to elect 8 delegates and 4 alternate delegates to represent them at the convention. Those not elected as a delegate or alternate and who meet the qualifications can apply separately to be an add-on delegate in the following categories: youth, minority, disabled, LGBTQ, or as a convention volunteer. Caucus attendees requiring hearing-related accommodations will be able to use closed captioning through Zoom. 

This year’s Massachusetts Democratic State Convention will take place Saturday, September 25 at the Tsongas Center, UMass-Lowell. This will be a platform convention without candidate nominations. For more information about the caucus, the convention, or the Holliston Democratic Town Committee, contact Lisa Kaplan.
