Caucuses This Weekend for Westport
What you need to know…
If Westport Island is any indication of voter interest in the Maine presidential caucuses this weekend, there is a lot of interest.
Westport Island’s caucuses are scheduled as follows:
The Republican caucus will be a countywide caucus on Saturday, March 5, 11 a.m. at Wiscasset High School, 272 Gardiner Road, Wiscasset.
The Democratic caucus will be on Sunday, March 6, 1 p.m. at Wiscasset Elementary School, 83 Federal Street, Wiscasset.
One hour before each caucus starts — beginning at 10 a.m. at Saturday’s Republican caucus; and beginning at noon at Sunday’s Democratic caucus — Town Clerks/Registrars are on site to take new voter registrations and enrollment changes for unenrolled or “undeclared” voters. An unenrolled voter may enroll in a party with the Town Clerk/Registrar at the caucus and is eligible to participate immediately. (However, a voter declared Republican or Democrat who elects to change their party may not participate in party caucuses or other party activities for 15 days.)
Voters may also come into the town office during business hours to register to vote or to change from unenrolled to a declared party: Tuesdays, noon to 7 p.m., and Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m..
For questions about the caucus schedules, Republicans may call Stuart Smith, President, Lincoln County Republican Committee, (800) 380-6831; and Democrats may call April Thibodeau, Convener for Westport Island, 756-3691
