It's election day in Maine! No, we're not voting for President, Governor, or members of Congress, but the decisions that Mainers make today at the polls are still really important. In addition to local issues and municipal candidates for office, you will see these five questions on your ballot today. Here's the information directly from the Maine Secretary of State's office:

Question 1: Citizen Initiative

TITLE: An Act To Allow Slot Machines or a Casino in York County. - Legislation

Do you want to allow a certain company to operate table games and/or slot machines in York County, subject to state and local approval, with part of the profits going to the specific programs described in the initiative?


Question 2: Citizen Initiative

TITLE: An Act To Enhance Access to Affordable Health Care. - Legislation

Do you want Maine to expand Medicaid to provide healthcare coverage for qualified adults under age 65 with incomes at or below 138% of the federal poverty level, which in 2017 means $16,643 for a single person and $22,412 for a family of two?


Question 3: Bond Issue

TITLE: An Act To Authorize a General Fund Bond Issue to Improve Highways, Bridges and Multimodal Facilities and Upgrade Municipal Culverts  - Legislation

Do you favor a $105,000,000 bond issue for construction, reconstruction and rehabilitation of highways and bridges and for facilities or equipment related to ports, harbors, marine transportation, freight and passenger railroads, aviation, transit and bicycle and pedestrian trails, to be used to match an estimated $137,000,000 in federal and other funds, and for the upgrade of municipal culverts at stream crossings?


Question 4: Constitutional Amendment

TITLE: Resolution, Proposing an Amendment to the Constitution of Maine To Reduce Volatility in State Pension Funding Requirements Caused by the Financial Markets  - Legislation

Do you favor amending the Constitution of Maine to reduce volatility in state pension funding requirements caused by the financial markets by increasing the length of time over which experience losses are amortized from 10 years to 20 years, in line with pension industry standards?
