Maine Democrats To Begin Voting Remotely For Delegates

AUGUSTA, Maine — The Maine Democratic Party is kicking off remote elections for delegates to the Democratic National Convention.

The 2020 state convention that was supposed to be this weekend in Bangor was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. It’s being replaced by online and telephone elections starting Friday and ending Sunday.

The three-day event wraps up with a livestreamed session Sunday in which candidates will address the party faithful. Joining the group will be two former Democratic presidential candidates, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
