STATE BALLOT QUESTIONS
Question 1-People’s Veto: League Endorses a YES vote
Do you want to reject the section of Chapter 399 of the Public Laws of 2011 that requires new voters to register to vote at least two business days prior to an election?
Voting rights are important to Leaguers and we want to help save them! The League is already pledging (wo)man hours to make sure we keep ME’s 38 year old Same Day Voter Registration law. Contact us to see what you can do to help protect ME voting rights!
Jen – 772-3207
Question 2 – Citizen’s Initiative: League Endorses a NO vote
Do you want to allow a slot machine facility at a harness racing track in Biddeford or another community within 25 miles of Scarborough Downs, subject to local approval, and at a harness racing track in Washington County, with part of the profits from these facilities going to support specific state and local programs?
State Question 3 – Citizen’s Initiative: League Endorses a NO vote
Do you want to allow a casino with table games and slot machines in Lewiston, with part of the profits going to support specific state and local programs?
Leaguer’s aren’t buying the idea that slot machines in Biddeford & Washington Counties & a casino setting up shop in Lewiston are viable paths for economic growth. Short-term development & non-living wages aren’t worth the huge corporate profits, disinformation & costs that most people don’t even know about.
Question 4 – Constitutional Amendment: League Endorses a YES vote
Do you favor amending the Constitution of Maine to change the years of redistricting the Maine Legislature, congressional districts and county commis- sioner districts after 2013 from 2023 and every 10th year thereafter to 2021 and every 10th year thereafter?
Getting political parties out of the redistricting game makes sense to us, especially after these most recent proposals set forth by the state legislature. This appears to be a step in that direction.
