If you’ve never attended a caucus before, or if you’ve caucused with us many times, now is the time to Rise and Organize at your local caucus on March 8. Because if we’re going to win in 2020, voting by itself is not enough.
Maine will hold a Presidential Primary for the first time in decades on March 3, 2020. But if we’re going to win in November, voting by itself won’t be enough.
Every path to winning the United States Senate runs through Maine, and no matter who is president, we need a Senate that works to give every American a fair shot at success.
But Donald Trump, Susan Collins, and Maine Republicans are being propped up by their wealthy corporate allies, which means we have to work twice as hard to defeat them.
That’s why on March 8, 2020, just days after Maine’s Presidential Primary, Democrats will Rise and Organize at caucuses in towns and cities across Maine.
Although we’ll be casting our votes for our preferred presidential nominees the week before, these caucuses are the first step in building our winning coalition to support our eventual nominees for President and U.S. Senate, Reps. Golden and Pingree, and state legislative nominees up and down the ballot.
We’re going to need every ounce of support in building a strong infrastructure to persuade voters, one household at a time. That’s why the caucuses are so important.
This Wednesday, hundreds of thousands of Americans will mobilize with a simple demand: Reject The Coverup.
Together, we’ll demand:
Accountability — Trump and the Senators and members of Congress who voted to cover up his crimes will be held accountable by their constituents.
Democracy — Now more than ever, we need to ensure a free and fair election in 2020, which means real election security reform and and end to voter suppression.
Reform — Like after Watergate, we demand structural reforms to end the corruption and abuses of power that allowed Donald Trump’s criminal behavior in the first place.
It’s up to us to mobilize like never before — and ensure that this dark moment in our nation’s history is followed by an unprecedented level of civic action.

The 2020 election is too important to sit on the sidelines. Voting is crucial, but it isn’t enough. Democrats have to stand together to fight back against Donald Trump, Susan Collins, Mitch McConnell, and their wealthy, corporate allies. We need to do everything we can to make our voices heard.
That’s why you should come to the next Letter to the Editor Seminar in Lewiston! Susan Collins refuses to meet with her constituents and listen to our questions and concerns. It is unacceptable that she has refused to hold a town hall in over 20 years. So the Maine Dems and March Forth are partnering to make sure Susan Collins listens to Mainers. Letters to the Editor (or LTEs) are a great way to make your voice heard and tell the Republicans in Washington and Augusta that we aren’t backing down. Join us on Wednesday, February 5th in Lewiston at 6pm! Space is limited, so click here to register before it fills up.
Mary Ann Larson, from March Forth, will take us through the best practices for writing a letter and submitting it to a paper. She knows all the best tricks to help make your LTE successful. Come with an idea for a topic you want to write about — from health care to voter protection to impeachment or any issue you’re passionate about — and by the end of the seminar, you’ll start writing your own LTE.
