DAMARISCOTTA — The Lincoln County Democratic Committee plans to hold its first hybrid meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 19, via Zoom or in person at the Great Salt Bay Community School, 559 Main St.

For safety, all attendees are required to wear a mask unless speaking, according to a news release from the committee.

Secretary of State Shenna Bellows, guest speaker, will present “Defending Our Democracy” to discuss: legislative accomplishments that continue to make Maine a model for protecting voting rights in the country; disinformation that poses risks to the democracy and how to counter it; and concrete ways to stand up for voting rights and election integrity in 2022.

All Lincoln County Democrats and unenrolled progressives are welcome to attend LCDC meetings.

Registration is not required to attend in person but is required for non-voting members to receive Zoom log on and/or phone in details.

Register online at lincolncountydemocrats.com/meet before noon the day of the meeting to ensure access.

LCDC encourages potential attendees to register for Zoom access just in case. Attendees can choose to participate either by Zoom or in person at any time without notifying the organization.

Voting members of the LCDC will automatically receive the log-on information and reminders by email. Those interested in becoming a voting member must be a registered Democrat in Lincoln County and may make their interest known by indicating such at lincolncountydemocrats.com/meet, or by emailing [email protected].
