LD 1578 - National Popular Vote Scheme

Updated: Mar 18

Good morning fellow Mainers,

You may or may not have heard that we are another step closer to erasing the voice of Maine voters. On Wednesday, the Maine Senate voted to enact the National Popular Vote (NPV). Last week, Democrats in the House also voted for NPV. This, despite the majority on the Committee on Veteran and Legal Affairs voting Ought Not to Pass.

Under this scheme, If Candidate A were to win the election in Maine, but Candidate B wins the NPV, Maine's state electors would be directed to award our electoral votes to Candidate B. This completely ignores the people of Maine's voice in determining who our president should be. What would be the point of holding elections in Maine?

I am imploring you to write to our legislative representatives to voice your concerns.

Additionally, let Janet Mills know you wish for her to veto the bill should it arrive at her desk.
