Last year, 85,185 of you signed the petition to strengthen our Maine Clean Election Law.

Unfortunately, many more of who did not have the opportunity to do so wanted the same things those signers did: to encourage strict campaign finance and contribution limits by strengthening Maine’s landmark Clean Election Act, so that candidates can run for office without being beholden to wealthy special interests, to increase fines and penalties for those who break election rules so we can keep our representatives accountable to us, and to increase transparency and shine a light on big money in our elections by requiring special interest groups to list their top three funders on any ads they buy.

This year every voter in Maine will have the opportunity to show our elected officials that we want them to be accountable to us, not big money. Go to the polls on Nov. 3, and vote yes on 1.
