The purpose of the caucus is to elect members to the Groton Democratic Town Committee (GDTC) for the next two years. Members will be elected by district caucuses of each of the seven voting districts in Groton.

The GDTC is responsible for recruiting and endorsing candidates to run for local offices (Town Council, Board of Education, and RTM) and for electing delegates to attend Conventions to endorse candidates for State Representative, State Senate, Judge of Probate, Congress, and the Senate, and State Offices.

Delegate elections take place at the March GDTC meeting. Conventions are held in May. Additionally, the GDTC will select ten candidates for Justices of the Peace and a candidate for Registrar of Voters.

Members elected in January will take office at the March meeting when they elect officers for the next two years.

The GDTC plans to open a headquarters in late summer for the November Presidential election. Numerous volunteer opportunities will be available at that time. New members and others who want to be involved are always welcome.
