Building block of democracy
To the Editor:
The Democratic party caucuses will be held on Sunday, February 26, at many locations throughout our region. The caucuses are open to registered
Democrats and we are looking forward to greeting our longtime supporters as well as new faces motivated by the opportunity to participate in the 2012 election.
Those who are not registered to vote or who are not enrolled in a party who wish to participate must register or enroll in advance at their town office, or arrive at the caucus location 30 minutes ahead of the advertised time to do so. The business of the caucus will be presidential preference voting, election of delegates to the June state convention, and election of town and county Democratic committees.
Additional activities will include remarks by candidates or their representatives, supporting candidates by signing nominating petitions, or providing Maine Clean Elections qualifying contributions.
There will also be collections of non-perishable items for local food pantries, and the opportunity to be entered in a drawing sponsored by the Maine Democratic party to win two tickets to a reception in March with President Obama in Portland. The caucus is a great time to get together with other Democrats and to participate in a critical building block of our democracy.
