At noon Wednesday, Oct. 26, the topic will be the effort to repeal a recently enacted change to Maine's voter-registration laws. After 38 years of same-day voter registration, the Maine Legislature in 2011 approved a change that would require voters to be registered at least two days prior to an election.
Joining us for this conversation will be Shenna Bellows, executive director of the Maine Civil Liberties Union and a member of the political action committee Protect Maine's Vote, which launched the people's veto initiative aimed at repealing the law and keeping same-day voter registration.
On the opposing side will be state Rep. John McKane, R-Newcastle, a supporter of the two-day-registration waiting period. Bellows and McKane will take questions from both our online audience and moderators from the Sun Journal.
Joining the conversation for the Sun Journal will be political reporter Steve Mistler, Regional Editor Scott Thistle and Web Editor Pattie Reaves.
