Maine: Contact Representative to Support Ballot Initiative Reform Legislation

Legislative Document 31 could come up for a vote soon in the House of Representatives to address problems and concerns with the State’s current “Citizen Initiative” process

For more than a decade, Maine’s ballot initiative process has transitioned into a gross disproportional representation of the citizens across the state.  Almost without exception, an overwhelming majority of the signatures collected to qualify an initiative have been collected from the First Congressional District.  This type of system is easy to manipulate and often represents the position of one certain geographic area of the state to the detriment of another.

LD 31 will need two-thirds of the Maine House to pass and appear on the Ballot this November.  It is critical you contact your state Representative and urge them to support LD 31!
