URGENT MESSAGE From our partners
at the Committee for Ranked Choice Voting:
In a special session Monday, Oct. 23, our Legislature defied the will of nearly 400,000 Mainers when they voted to delay and subsequently repeal Maine’s voter-approved Ranked Choice Voting law.
Their decision won’t stand. We’ve launched a People’s Veto campaign to reinstate Ranked Choice Voting starting with the June 2018 primary election.
HOW UUs AND FRIENDS CAN HELP ON TUESDAY, NOV. 7
Will you help us restore election reform? Election Day is next Tuesday and it’s the best chance for us to collect the signatures we need to place a People’s Veto on the June 2018 ballot to restore Ranked Choice Voting and take back our democracy.
Whether you are available for a few hours or the entire day, please consider signing up. We have only 90 days to collect 61,123 valid signatures to place this People’s Veto on the June 2018 ballot. Election Day is the best chance we’ve got to get signature collected quickly and ensure that you have more voice starting with the primary election next year.
The cynics and the skeptics have said all along that Ranked Choice Voting would never be implemented in Maine. By collecting and submitting 61,123 valid signatures for a People’s Veto, we’ll force Ranked Choice Voting implementation for the primary and federal elections in 2018.
They can’t stop the people. We’ve got this. Let’s take back our democracy.
