Clearing up some caucus confusion

Dear Editor:

There’s been some confusion about when Orland Democrats plan to caucus. Here are the correct times, all events at the Orland Community Center, formerly Orland Consolidated School, on Sunday, March 6.

Have you not been registered as a Democrat in Orland? No problem. Although the deadline has passed for moving from one party to another, individuals who are new in town or who have not been enrolled in a party may become an instant Democrat on Sunday and be a full participant in the caucus. A registrar will register you from 1 to 2 pm, before the caucus proper.

The caucus itself begins at 2 p.m., with the presidential preference portion expected to begin no earlier than 2:30. Also during this portion, participants will select municipal and county committee membership and hear from individuals who are running for office as well as those representing folks who aspire to higher office.

Democracy is not a spectator sport. Jump in!

Kent Price

Chairman, Orland Democrats
