WHY VOTE ?
These elections will choose who represents Mainers at the local, state, and national level for the next two, four, or six years, depending on the office. These officials will be making decisions about your lives and the lives of your friends and loved ones.
They’ll do things like:
setting the minimum wage and levels of other public benefits
making rules about your healthcare and education
choosing who sits on the Supreme Court of the United States
deciding which potholes to fill in around your neighborhood.
It is your right to participate, whether you’ve lived in Maine for decades or whether you just moved here for college or just became a US citizen.
