In a state of 1.3 million people with 750 thousand voters Marijuana Referendum passed by 6,620 votes (50.2 to 49.8 %.) 

  1. Maine went for Clinton
  2. Marijuana
  3. Minimum wage increase
  4. Money for Schools
  5. Money for infrastructure
  6. No on background checks for gun sales between private citizens.
  7. And yes on some proportional voting scheme giving voters second and third choices - don't know much about it but it seems fraught with possible problems.

the Ol'Buzzard


  1. The proportional voting measure is not worth the paper or the screen it is written on. In order to change the voting process in Maine, a new constitutional amendment needs to be in place. It was a waste of time.

  2. Some of Canada must have oozed over the border.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
