New Date for Andover Democratic Town Committee Caucus

Thank you all for your patience as we rescheduled our caucus due to last week's snowstorm. The new date of our caucus is MONDAY 2/26 at 7PM at Memorial Hall Library (2 North Main Street, Andover). The meeting will be held in Memorial Hall on the top floor of the library.

Registration for the caucus will begin at 6:30pm and remain open until 7:15pm sharp. If you are not in line by 7:15pm, you will not be permitted to vote in the caucus or run to be a delegate. Please be on time!

During the caucus, we will be electing 8 male delegates, 8 female delegates, 1 delegate of any gender, and 4 alternates. The duty of a delegate is to represent Andover Democrats at the 2018 Massachusetts Democratic Party Convention, which will be held on June 1st and June 2nd at the DCU Center in Worcester.

You must be a registered Democrat in Andover to vote in the caucus or run to be a delegate. If you have recently changed your party registration and believe it will not be accurately reflected in the voter roll, you can obtain a receipt from the Town Clerk and bring it to the caucus. You can also register to vote/fill out paperwork to become a Democrat at the caucus (forms will be available at registration).

*Special note: Seventeen-year-old pre-registered Democrats who reside in Andover and will be 18 on or before September 18, 2018 can take part in the caucus, run for delegate or alternate and vote for delegate or alternate.

To ensure that the caucus runs smoothly and efficiently, please arrive on time. We are required to finish before 9pm when the library closes. If we have contested races for delegate and alternate positions, candidates will be allowed to speak for a very brief amount of time.

For additional information, feel free to consult the Mass Dems Convention Page: It’s my intention to run an inclusive caucus and I will thoroughly explain the rules and procedures that night so that everyone is able to participate. In the meantime, if you have any individual questions, feel free to reach out to me (contact information listed below).
