Have You Voted Yet Today?
It’s election day in Maine and polls across the state are open, waiting for voters to decide who should represent them, and how the state’s money should be spent. Each municipality, obviously, has their own ballot entries, for city council, school board, etc. But we wanted to give you an idea of what to expect with the state referendum questions before you head to the polls.
According to the state’s Maine.gov website, here are the ballot questions that you’ll be voting on today. Remember, even if you’re not registered to vote in your town, you can still take part today. Stop by your polling place for more information.
