Tell the Maine Legislature: Vote NO on LD 1726, the "Block the Ballot" bill

To be delivered to The Maine State House and The Maine State Senate

Petition Statement

The establishment is trying to disallow petition signature gathering at the polls. This is a blatant attempt to change the rules and stop people power in our democracy. Vote NO on LD 1726!
There are currently 249 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

What are the major progressive accomplishments in this decade in Maine? A higher minimum wage. Expanded health insurance for struggling working people. Ranked choice voting.

How did we get them? Through popular referendum votes.

So what is the response of the political establishment? LD 1726, which would cripple the referendum process by prohibiting the collection of signatures on election days.

We are winning on issues, so now they are attempting to change the rules and put restrictions on our democracy. Please join me and say "NO" to LD 1726. Say "NO" to changing the process that has allowed us to make progress for all Mainers.
