Maine Democrats' virtual voting continues this weekend

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — The Maine Democratic Party is continuing this weekend remote elections for delegates to the Democratic National Convention.

The Democratic National Committee approved the plan for remote elections of delegates to the national convention in August in Milwaukee, along with presidential electors, state committee members and DNC representatives.

Voting began Friday and wraps up Sunday with a virtual rally featuring Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and Sens. Bernie Sanders, of Vermont, and Elizabeth Warren, of Massachusetts.

The event is happening on the weekend that Democrats were supposed to hold their state convention in Bangor.
