Promoting Democratic Values in Hancock County, Maine.

APRIL meeting

Delegates, Conventions, and More

With Wayne Kinney

April 18, 2024 7:00 PM
At the Moore Center, Ellsworth, and via Zoom

Our meeting this month will be hybrid, with the option of attending in person or by Zoom. We will cover some business first, and then we will welcome our special guest Wayne Kinney. Wayne will review what will happen at the state Democratic Convention on May 31 and June 1 at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. He will also discuss how people can run for delegate at the national convention, and share details of what that experience is like.

We will also be voting on additional state delegates at this meeting, so if you’re at all interested in becoming a delegate, now is your chance.

Wayne Kinney has worked on delegate selection plans in two states since 2003, and has been a delegate to five Democratic national conventions. When the DNC threatened last fall to force the Maine Democrats to scupper ranked-choice voting, Wayne and Sec. of State Shenna Bellows traveled to Washington DC and persuaded the DNC rules committee to allow RCV to be used in our presidential primary. 

Wayne is chair of the Franklin County Democrats, and serves as the vice chair of the MDP Rules Committee. He is one of the volunteers working with MDP staff on caucus and convention planning. 

If you plan to attend by Zoom, please register in advance for this meeting.

Pre-registration required for Zoom attendance by noon the day before the meeting. You will receive a unique link you will need to use to join the meeting.
