At the CDCC meeting February 25th, we discussed a fundraising process that has been used successfully in Hancock County. The folks there use the recurring donation feature on ActBlue. It is possible for towns without websites to work in tandem with the CCDC, using our website to solicit contributions. We asked for towns to volunteer - and Freeport and Scarborough agreed to try it out at caucus time. The DONATE link above now goes to the shared page. Let us know what you think. Contributions can shared equally or split among the towns as desired. Both single and recurring donations are supported. More details: Rachel Hendrickson and Bill Birthisel
DOORS time is when Voter Registration begins for those who need to register.
START is the time formal caucus activities begin.
For additional details, please contact the respective Convener or Bill Birthisel.

The Maine Caucuses are gatherings of neighbors in the New England tradition of town meetings. The Maine Democratic Party, with the help of local county and municipal committees, organizes caucuses by town.
Anyone who is eligible to vote in the State of Maine and will be at least 18 years of age on Election Day, November 8, 2016, may participate in caucuses.
You must be a Registered Democrat to participate.
If you are currently registered as a Green Independent or a Republican, you must re-register to vote with your town office and enroll in the Democratic Party by Friday February 19, 2016.
If you are currently unregistered or unenrolled in a political party (aka an independent), you may register/re-register at your municipal caucus on caucus day. The doors will open significantly before the actual business begins.
If you can’t attend in person, you may request an Absentee Ballot from the Maine Democratic Party. Absentees can request that they be considered for election as a Delegate or Alternate to the State Convention. Absentee ballots must be received in Augusta by Wednesday, March 2, 2016.
Cumberland County Democratic Committee Meeting: Feb. 25, 7:00pm, Cumberland Town Hall, 290 Tuttle Rd.
Special guest speaker: Senator Justin Alfond. What will the 2016 Senate campaign look like in Cumberland County? What’s at stake and what’s ahead?
Democratic senate candidates from Cumberland County have been invited to attend and give their one minute door speech. House candidates welcome as well.
Also on the agenda: Penny Joyce has resigned as the Treasurer of the CCDC. Many thanks to Penny, who stepped in when needed. Bill Birthisel, the CCDC Secretary, has taken on the role of Treasurer. At this meeting, we will elect a new secretary to fill out the term until the elections in November. Interested in running? Come to the meeting.
Bill Birthisel will talk about a fundraising proposal, to ensure we have enough money to assist our municipal committees during the 2016 campaign.
And…we’ll finish up with up to date information on the Caucuses and answer any questions about the process. With caucuses scheduled in every single town in Cumberland County, and 955 delegate seats from Cumberland at the Convention, we are in for an exciting few months.
Join Special guest the Hon. Mike Michaud and the Cumberland County Democratic Committee for a reception to support the 2016 grassroots campaign efforts in Cumberland County. Justin Alfond and Mark Eves will also speak.
With 7 Senate and 30 House campaigns in the county and dozens of municipal elections, it is critical that our Democratic city and town organizations in Cumberland County have the resources to lead the grassroots efforts to elect Democrats at every level.
From the Caucus in March, to the Convention in May, to the election in November, the Democrats in Cumberland County are at the center of state campaign activity in 2016.
Join us on Nov. 17 5:30 PM at Bayside Bowl ($30 Activist)
Other special guests to be announced.
The Hon. Mike Michaud is appearing as a special guest of the Cumberland County Democratic Committee. His participation at this event is not a solicitation for funds or attendance.
