Democratic Town Committees

What are Democratic Town Committees?

Democratic Town Committees (DTCs) and Democratic City Committees (DCCs) are official entities recognized by the Massachusetts Democratic Party and by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Several hundred local, community-based Democratic Committees function in Massachusetts cities and towns. Their responsibilities include organizing local Democrats, working to elect Democrats to public office, and increasing Democratic registration in their respective neighborhoods.

The North Shore region of Massachusetts has no fixed definition. It may be considered as the region north of Boston, extending to the New Hampshire border, encompassing the communities that border the Atlantic Ocean and including several inland communities This portion of the Massachusetts Cities and Towns map shows the North Shore region.

Most of these cities and towns have Democratic City or Town Committees that hold regular meetings, often with guest speakers, and engage in various activities that promote Democratic values. Committee meetings are open to the public. You do not need to be a member to attend meetings, and you are welcome to volunteer to participate in activities that fit your interests.

This Website is a gateway to the North Shore Democratic City and Town Committees. The DTCs section has links to the Democratic Committee Websites and Facebook pages, and we encourage you to contact a local or nearby Committee to learn what is going on in your community. We also include information on current officeholders and we provide links to many national organizations.

Vote For Democracy: 9 States That May Decide The Senate

While the presidential election gets the most attention, also of major significance is the election of U.S. Senators. This November 5, thirty-four Senate seats will be on the line. The numbers favor the Republicans: seats currently held by Democrats number 20, seats held by Independents number 3, and seats held by Republicans number 11.

Let’s look at the math. The U.S. Senate currently has 51 Democrats (including the 3 Independents) and 49 Republicans. With Joe Manchin (D) retiring, the Republicans almost certainly will pick up a seat in West Virginia. If Democrats retain all the remaining states that they (and their allied Independents) hold, it will be a 50-50 Senate, with Democrats getting a tie-breaking vote from the Vice President with a Biden-Harris victory. If Democrats lose just one more state, which could happen in a “swing” state or a “toss-up” state, they will lose control of the Senate—unless they gain a victory in a “leaning Republican” state (Texas or maybe Florida).

While every Senate race is important, the control of the Senate may very well be determined by the results in 9 states that could go either way. Democrats looking to contribute, or volunteer, should especially consider these Senate races:
