Every two years Newton's eight Ward Committees and the Newton Democratic City Committee gather to elect their officers at an "organizational meeting". According to State Law, political committees must organize in 2016 between April 1 and 10. The NDCC will host all Wards' organizational meetings and its own City Committee organizational meeting together on this date. Wards will organize first and then the City Committee. This meeting is open to the public. Only members of one of Newton's eight Democratic ward committees who were elected on March 1 or who hold either 20-year or ex-oficio status may seek leadership positions or vote for officers.
