04 Apr 2018 Democratic State Convention
Our 2018 Democratic State Convention will take place on Friday, May 18 – Sunday, May 20 at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston. The convention gives Democrats the opportunity to hear from MDP leadership, Democratic candidates, and grassroots leaders; meet fellow passionate Democrats from across the state; and participate in activist workshops. Check out our Convention Schedule for more information. Only Convention delegates and alternates speak on the floor and vote, but the event is open to the public and we encourage you to attend!
