Maine's remarkable democracy was ranked tops in the nation for voter turnout in the 1992 and 1996 Presidential elections, and was second for turnout in 2000.

Eligible individuals still may register and vote on the June 10 bond issue, thanks to Maine's election-day registration law. Voters with questions about how and where to register and vote should contact their local election officials. More election information, such as listings of local officials, a Citizen's Guide to the referendum and a sample ballot, is available from the Secretary of State's Division of Elections at www.maine.gov/sos or 207.624.7650.
