FARMINGTON — Democrats in every Maine town meet, Sunday, Jan. 31, to elect delegates to the Democratic State Convention and to elect democratic town committee officers and democratic county committee members. Attendees will also discuss policy issues affecting all Maine people.

Caucus times and locations in each town are listed below and can also be found at www.franklindems.com.

“The caucuses are the front lines of grassroots politics,” Franklin County Democrats Chairperson Anne Geller said in a prepared statement. “We encourage people to bring to the caucus their viewpoints, ideas and questions.”

Elected officials and Democratic candidates or their representatives will be on hand to hear constituents’ thoughts on what the focus of the Democratic Party should be in the coming year.

Caucuses are open to all registered Democrats and to people not currently registered in a political party who would like to enroll as a Democrat. People who would like to become registered Democrats may do so now at their town office or at the caucus. Enrollments at the caucus can take place starting one-half hour before the caucus start-time and continuing for the first half hour of the caucus itself.

The alternate snow date will be during the first week of February and will be announced as needed. Please direct any questions to Geller at: [email protected] or 778-6672, or the convener of your local caucus. Names and contact information can be found online at www.franklindems.com.
