Welcome To The Bedford Massachusetts Democratic Town Committee Website

The Bedford Democratic Town Committee (BDTC) advances the ideals of the Democratic Party organizing to elect and appoint members of the Democratic Party at the City, District, County, State and National Levels. The Committee consists of up to 35 local Democratic Party activists who are elected every four years during the Presidential primary election. Members of the Committee represent the Democratic Party at the local level.

The current Chair of the Bedford MA DTC is Shawn Hanegan and the current Vice Chair is Cynthia Lynch.

The DTC strongly believes in equality and does not discriminate in the conduct of Democratic Party business.


Registered and pre-registered Democrats in Bedford will be holding a caucus on Thursday March 7th at 7:30PM to elect 9 delegates and 4 alternates to the 2024 Massachusetts Democratic State Convention. The caucus will take place virtually. Democrats who wish to participate may register at this link.


The BDTC is seeking new members that share our ideals and want to become involved in promoting Democratic and progressive causes.  



The BDTC gets involved in supporting the election of Democrats and promotion of progressive causes via visibilities, phone and text banking, and providing advice. We meet roughly every two months to hear from elected officials, candidates for office, progressive groups, and to have forums on topics of interest. Some recent topics of meetings have been political messaging, climate change, local journalism, education, and diversity. During the past few years, our meetings have been held on Zoom. We also have a presence at Bedford Day, elect delegates to annual state Democratic conventions, and have social events twice a year.

We are part of a global Bedford Democratic Alliance, with Democratic and progressive parties in the US and around the world that are also named "Bedford". This has been a great way to learn about what is going on in other Bedfords, and how to help Democrats throughout the nation.
