"Massachusetts Democrats believe in the common good."

We know that the strength of our democracy is dependent on the engagement of thoughtful citizens. That is why our party is organized around the basic notion that individuals working together can make a positive impact on their community. Massachusetts Democrats believe that government plays a vital role in the lives of individuals and communities.”  

- From the Platform of the Massachusetts Democratic Party

Welcome to the official website of the Brookline Democratic Town Committee, the Brookline branch of the Democratic Party.

The Town Committee works to build a grassroots movement in Brookline in order to elect Democratic candidates to state and national offices through voter registration and education, voter contact via phone banks, door to door canvassing, social media and other events and activities. 

We hope this website will help you connect with other Democrats in Brookline to work on behalf of the issues and candidates that matter most to you, especially during these times that require us all to actively defend our values.

Voting Rights:

Standing Up for Democracy

Monday, May 8

7:30 p.m.

Brookline High School Cafeteria

115 Greenough Street

Our democracy is premised on the principle of "one person, one vote," yet this core value is under threat.  Nationally, we have seen administrative hurdles and voter suppression.  Even in Massachusetts, there are many ways we can improve voter registration and the right to vote.
