1. CAUCUS In Maine, for presidential preference, we elect candidates to the State Convention at our local caucuses in March. The Kittery Democrats had several planning meetings for this gathering. Weren’t we surprised when quite a few high schoolers showed up to help. Inspired by Bernie, these people were invaluable. The caucus system is a relic of times past and Kittery had more people attending than any indoor space could accommodate in the town. Sanders was the favorite by nearly 2 to 1 at our caucus and I was elected as a delegate to the Maine State Convention.
