Yes on One

The new voter registration law is simply undemocratic, and causes many more problems that it solves.   Protect Maine Votes:
We have had same-day voter registration for almost 40 years now, and it works well.  We have one of the highest voter participation rates in the country, and no significant problems with voter fraud.  The politicians in Augusta should not be trying to get rid of it – Vote YES to keep same-day registration. 

Election fraud in Maine is rare. There have been only two cases of prosecuted election fraud during the past 38 years.

A lot of people in Maine have to work two or even three jobs to make ends meet, which can make it difficult for them to take time off to go register. Same-day registration makes it possible for many working Mainers to vote. Without same-day registration, these hardworking people could be shut out.
