Then congratulations, you are already a member of the Village of Larchmont Democratic Party! You are welcome to participate in any of our public activities and to vote in our party caucuses.

Want to join the party leadership? There are many opportunities, with varying levels of responsibilities and time commitments. You can serve during our annual caucus as an officer, or take a leadership position throughout the year, or volunteer during the election season.

Caucus Officers serve once a year at the party caucus in January, where candidates are nominated to represent the party in the Village of Larchmont election. There are three officers:

  1. Caucus Chairperson is responsible for conducting the village caucus.
  2. Caucus Secretary creates an accurate record of  business conducted at the party caucus and completes the nominating petitions filed with the Village Clerk.
  3. Caucus Teller attests to the results of voting for each office.

Any member of the Village of Larchmont Democratic Party can serve in these positions;  there is no advance registration or training required.
