WHAT'S THE PURPOSE OF THE MEETING:
The meeting has THREE purposes:
1. TO VOTE IN NEW MEMBERS. Quincy has six wards. Each ward has a ward committee. Each ward committee has up to 35 "Elected" members, and an unlimited number of Associate Members. If you're a registered Democrat living in that ward, you can ask to become a member of that ward's committee. Elected members have voting rights. Associate members do not. It is expected that there will be many openings of the Elected membership in this election, pursuant to the 20-year rule. If you'd like to become an Elected or Associate member, please attend this meeting!
The first order of business for each ward is to vote and fill any vacancies on the Elected membership list. Vacancies will be filled from the Associate membership list, in order of Associate membership seniority. In addition, there will be a vote to add Associate members from registered Democrats who have expressed an interest in joining that ward's Committee.
2. TO ELECT NEW OFFICERS FOR EACH WARD: Each ward committee has officers (Chair; two Vice Chairs-male & female; Treasurer; and Secretary). The officers for each ward are re-elected every two years. The election on April 11, 2018 will be to elect new officers for each ward.
3. TO ELECT NEW OFFICERS FOR THE CITY-WIDE COMMITTEE: In addition to the ward committees, there's the Quincy Democratic City Committee (QDCC). The QDCC membership consists of all the members of the ward committees. After the ward committees have their votes, the collective membership will vote for QDCC's officers. The QDCC officers are: Chair; Vice-Chairs, male & female; Treasurer; Corresponding Secretary, Recording Secretary; Affirmative Action Officer, and Sergeant at Arms.

WHO ARE THE WARD'S ELECTED MEMBERS? HOW DO I BECOME ONE?
The election for the Elected Members takes place every four years. In particular, the nominees appear on the primary election ballot during Presidential election years. The members who were elected in the March 2016 Presidential primary election can be found here.
When vacancies occur between the Presidential primary elections, or if a ward does not elect 35 members in a Presidential primary election, the ward's Elected membership can vote and add new Elected members. As such, the current ward membership may vary from the 2016 Presidential primary elected membership.
