All registered Democrats in Grafton County are eligible to run for office and vote in the caucus elections. Nominations will be accepted from the floor. 

GCDC officer positions are: chair, vice chair, treasurer, secretary

GCDC also has six (6) Grafton County Democratic at-large delegates to the Democratic State Committee to be elected from our four regions. In accordance with our bylaws, this year we will elect two members at large from both Upper Valley Democrats and Northern Grafton County Democrats, and one member at large from both Plymouth Area Democrats and Mascoma Forward.

As of 2020, there is one town chair representative to the Democratic State Committee who will also be elected at the meeting but will only be voted on by town chairs of the county. This election will be held at the end of the caucus in a separate break out room.
