Conway Democrats to caucus

CONWAY — Registered Democrats in Conway will hold their annual caucus at the Conway Town Hall, Route 116 and Academy Hill Road, on Feb. 15 at 10 a.m. to elect two delegates and three alternates to the 2014 Massachusetts Democratic Convention. Delegates will be divided equally between men and women.

The convention will be held on June 13 and 14 in Worcester. At that time, Democrats from across the state will gather for the purpose of endorsing statewide candidates. The name of those candidates who receive 15 percent of the state convention vote will be placed on the 2014 Democratic Primary ballot.

The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Conway. Candidates for delegate and alternate must consent to nomination in writing and must be present at the caucus. 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. Details on the rules can be found at:

Discrimination on the basis of race, sex, age, color, creed, national origin, religious, ethnic identity, sexual orientation or economic status in the conduct of the caucus is prohibited. Challenges to the delegate selection process can be filed with the Massachusetts Democratic Party, 56 Roland St., Suite 203, Boston, MA 02120 no later than 10 days after the caucus date.
