The campaign in Maine to reinstate same-day registration for voters has outspent the side that wants to make it harder to vote by 17 to one:
The yes campaign’s biggest political action committee is Protect Maine Votes, whose major contributors include financier Donald Sussman and unions. The Maine Republican Party, some county GOP organizations and the Maine Heritage Policy Center donated to the opposing campaign.Through last week, the money difference is $412,162 to $24,459. The video above shows some of what the pro-same-day side is doing with their cash. The vote’s November 8. Making it easier to vote is leading in one poll by 51 to 43, with six percent undecided.
