The basic legal organization of political parties in Massachusetts are the ward and town committees. Each political party may elect a ward or town committee consisting of three to thirty-five members in each ward of a city and in each town for a four year term. Members of ward and town committees serve in the following capacities:

• represent their party at the local neighborhood level;
• promote the objectives of the party; and
• work for the nomination and election of party candidates.

Deadline for nomination papers to be filed in the Town Clerk’s office is November 8, 2019.
