The Democratic State Committee (DSC) will elect three members to the Platform Committee via an online election at the DSC’s virtual meeting on May 16 from 1:00 - 3:00 PM. Any Democrat can run for these positions!

The Platform Committee works on our Democratic Party Platform, our statement of core values that guides us in all we do. The Platform Committee meets regularly through the summer, fall and winter to review the Platform and debate possible amendments. Platform Committee members report on Platform Committee proceedings to their County Committees and bring back County Committee feedback to the Platform Committee. By March 1, 2022, the Platform Committee must present a final version of their proposed amendments to the Platform to be published and discussed leading up to voting on those amendments at the State Convention. 

If you would like to be on the ballot, please email your name, address, and phone number to Maine Democratic Party Executive Director Lisa Roberts, by 5:00 PM on Friday, May 7, 2021. Once candidates submit their request to be on the ballot, they will be provided with detailed instructions on how to campaign.

Candidates are listed here alphabetically. Additional candidates will be added within one business day of notifying us of their intent to run.
