12. The coldest temperature every recorded in Maine was 50 below zero. The temperature was recorded on Jan. 16, 2009, in what northern town along the Aroostook River? Listed Answer: Caribou
I'm not sure about the facts of the others although...It was verified by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and published by the National Weather Service located in Caribou but the actual location is 80 +/- miles away from Caribou. A small remote site located on the Big Black river which is near the Quebec border. Posting inaccurate information will just lead to people believing facts that are not facts at all.
It was announced but not announced well unless you were looking for it. I saw it listed early November when I opened the Quarterly Collection Schedule searching for possible dates that the transfer facility or trash pick-up was interrupted by holidays. Here is the link they had on the website http://www.lewistonmaine.gov/DocumentView.aspx?DID=1097. As for the roads it is beyond the point of ridiculous. My street isn't a commonly traveled street by any means and in the last 2 years the snow removal, salting or sanding has only seemed to go downhill.
If there are any suspicions then the Secretary of State should be doing the investigation. That is one of the duties, be it among many of the Secretary of States office. If even 1 name comes back as a possible infraction from the list which was created by Mr. Webster we should be thanking him for alerting the office of such. It should not be up to concerned private or public citizens to be doing any investigations. Yes Mr Webster had focused on college students but again this is not his responsibility. The responsibility is that of the SOS offices. Also anyone who has done any investigation or trouble shooting knows you need to start somewhere, the easiest way to narrow down the investigation is to find a group which is more likely to have be involved. Somehow I believe there would be no thanks or apology if the SOS office showed even ONE name from the list which had be fraudulent.
As for the argument "Eliminating Election Day registration only makes it harder for Maine people to vote. It makes it harder for people who are older, or disabled, or move often and have trouble getting to the Town hall or office to register a change of address." A Voter card can be located at any Town Office, City Hall, or BMV Branch. Written on the back of a Vehicle registration "If the name or address changes from that given on the registration, you must notify the Secretary of State within 10 days"
For a state of Maine ID, Maine law currently requires you to notify the Secretary of State within 30 days of any change in your name or address, you are also required to show proof of your Maine residential address to BMV branch office personnel before an address change request can be processed.
If a resident chooses not to complete the voter application at the time when they are already at the location doing an address or name changes then who's fault is it but there own. Or should we change these laws as well.
