Approximately 140 Granges from across the state will send delegates to debate resolutions and policies on subjects ranging from early and absentee voting to requiring drug tests for welfare recipients. They will work on several resolutions dealing with a wide variety of internal issues.

Resolutions passed at the session will become policy of the Grange and will be lobbied for at the Maine State Legislature. Those pertaining to national policies will be sent to the National Grange Session in November, where delegates from across the country will consider them.
