AP Election Brief | What to expect in Maine’s referendum election

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Maine voters will decide the fate of eight statewide ballot measures in a referendum election Tuesday. Question 2 would ban foreign governments and entities they own, control or influence from making campaign contributions in candidate elections or ballot measures. The move is in response to the $22 million a Canadian utility spent to influence the outcome of a previous Maine referendum election in which the utility had a financial interest. Question 3 would shutter two privately owned electric utilities and replace them with a nonprofit entity called Pine Tree Power, which would be run by an elected board.
