Maine Repeals Voter Registration Changes

Maine voters "repealed a law requiring voters to enroll at least two days before an election, restoring a four-decade policy of allowing registrations as late as Election Day," the Portland Press Herald reports.

"The referendum was put on Tuesday's ballot through a 'people's veto' initiative after the Republican-controlled Legislature passed a law in June requiring voters to register at least two business days before an election is held. Maine's tradition of allowing "same day" voter registrations began with a law passed in 1973."
