2018 Maine Democratic Party Caucuses

On Sunday, March 4th, Maine Democrats across our state will gather to kick off the 2018 election campaign at our Democratic Caucuses. The caucuses are the organizational foundation of our party, and we need you there.

Learn more: https://www.mainedems.org/caucus
Pre-register today: https://my.mainedems.org/caucus/prereg

Our caucuses this year will be a unique organizing opportunity for local Democrats. You will have the chance to gather with other Democrats in your community, find out every way to get involved in 2018 campaigns, and add your voice to our #VictoryStartsHere statewide virtual rally by making signs with your fellow caucus attendees describing what victory means to you.

Caucuses last 1-2 hours and are scheduled on March 4, 2018 to start between 1 PM and 8 PM (specific times will vary by location). Caucuses will be held in towns and cities across the state. We are in the process of confirming all of the exact locations. Every county will have several caucuses, so there will be one near you.

Whether you have never attended a party caucus before or have caucused many times, please join us this year to help make our shared positive vision for Maine a reality.
