Registered Democrats in Littleton recently participated in a caucus to elect delegates to the 2018 Massachusetts State Democratic Convention.
Caucus participants elected five delegates and four alternates, which included Helen Bailey, Katie Carruth, Rob Hueston, Anna Hueston, Grant Marley, Bartlett Harvey, Linda Taricano, Gretchen Webster and Mark Tervo. In addition, the chair of the Littleton Town Democratic Committee at the time of the convention will attend as an ex-officio delegate.
The Convention will be held at the DCU Center in Worcester on June 1st and 2nd where delegates will vote to determine which statewide candidates will be on the Democratic ticket in the 2018 Primary Election in September. This includes candidates for governor as well as other Constitutional officers such as secretary of the commonwealth, attorney general, treasurer and auditor. In each race the candidate receiving a majority vote of the Convention delegates will be the endorsed candidate of the Democratic Party. Candidates receiving at least 15% of the delegates’ votes at the Convention also qualify to appear on the September primary ballot along with the endorsed candidate.
The caucus was well attended and included, in addition to the voting participants, several candidates and their surrogates seeking signatures for their nomination papers and the opportunity to introduce themselves to the attendees.
