Ten delegates, three alternates to be elected

Registered Democrats in Sandwich will be holding a caucus at the Community Room of the Sandwich Housing Authority at Hanson Village on Tom's Way in Sandwich on Saturday, February 12, 2011 to elect 10 delegates and 3 alternates to the 2011 Massachusetts Democratic Convention. Delegates will be divided equally between men and women.

This year's Action Agenda Convention will be held on Saturday, June 4th at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell.  All Massachusetts Democrats chosen at their caucuses will gather to adopt a new Action Agenda outlining grassroots and party building initiatives to build on our successes this year to prepare us for the elections in 2012.

The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Sandwich.  All ballots will be written and secret.  Those not elected as Delegate and/or Alternate, who meet the qualifications, may apply to be add-on delegates in the following categories; youth, minority, and disabled.

Discrimination on the basis of race, sex, age, color, national origin, disability, religion, ethnic identity, sexual orientation or economic status in the conduct of the caucus is strictly prohibited.  Challenges to the delegate selection process can be filed with the Massachusetts Democratic Party, 56 Roland Street, Suite 203, Boston, MA 02129 no later than ten days after the caucus.
