OTIS — Registered Democrats in town will be holding a caucus at Town Hall on Friday, Feb. 8, at 10 a.m., to elect two delegates and one alternate to the 2008 Massachusetts Democratic Convention.

Delegates will be divided equally between men and women. Per new state party rules, all registered Democrats who wish to participate in this caucus must be in the caucus room by 10 a.m.

The convention will be held on Saturday, June 7, at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell. At that time, Democrats from across the state will gather to endorse candidates for the office of U.S. Senator. The names of those candidates who receive 15 percent of the state convention vote will be placed on the Sept. 16 Democratic primary ballot.

The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Otis.

Candidates for delegate and alternate must consent to nomination in writing and must be present at the caucus. Those not elected as delegates and/or alternates, 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, creed, national origin, religion, ethnic identity, sexual orientation or economic status in the conduct of the caucus is strictly prohibited.
