There were lots of smiling faces at Portland’s Bayside Bowl on Tuesday night, and not because the balls were rolling true. That’s where supporters of the Yes on 1 campaign gathered to await results of the referendum to restore Election-Day voter registration, which rolled to victory with 61 percent of the statewide vote. Questions 2 and 3, which would have allowed gambling operations in Biddeford, Washington County and Lewiston, were defeated. Following the Question 1 returns online are Ari Rosenberg, a campaign volunteer; Craig Saddlemire, a volunteer for Maine’s People Alliance; Nicola Wells, director of the League of Young Voters, and Lizzy Reinholt, the communications director for the Maine Democratic Party.
