State delegates elected a number of important Democratic Party positions May 29-31 on the state and national level. The positions elected include:
Democratic State Committee members
Every county in Maine gets a certain number of representatives to the Democratic State Committee (DSC). The DSC makes all the major decisions about how the Maine Democratic Party runs. It meets six times each year, with approximately half the meetings taking place in Augusta. The DSC is served by the Executive Committee, the Finance Committee, the Rules Committee, and by a committee made up of Democratic county party chairs.
Each county has earned the following number of seats on the State Committee for the 2020-2022 term:
Democratic National Committee Representatives
Congratulations to our new Democratic National Committee (DNC) representatives Drew Gattine and Rachel Talbot Ross! And a big thanks to Troy Jackson and Diane Denk for their past service in these positions.
The DNC makes all the major decisions about how the national Democratic Party runs. The DNC meets twice a year, once in the Washington, DC area and once at locations across the country. Its Eastern Regional caucus also meets once a year. DNC representatives are also de facto members of the Democratic State Committee and the Executive Committee. They are responsible for reporting back to the DSC and the Executive Committee on DNC matters.
DNC Representatives begin their four-year term the day the 2020 Democratic National Convention adjourns. The term ends on the day the 2024 Democratic National Convention adjourns.
