#SaveMainesVoice - Sign the Petition AGAINST a National Popular Vote!

WHEREAS, the Maine Legislature is considering adoption of legislation that would award Maine's four Electoral College votes in all future elections for US President to the candidate who wins the so-called "National Popular Vote" instead of the candidate who wins the popular vote of Maine people;

WHEREAS, the Electoral College was designed to ensure small population states like Maine have a voice in the election of the President of the United States;

WHEREAS, a National Popular Vote for President would concentrate electoral power in the population centers of America, including New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago;

WHEREAS, Maine represents 0.4% of the national population (1.3 million out of 325 million) but has 0.74% of the Electoral College votes (4 out of 538), the adoption of this legislation would cut Maine's electoral power almost in half;

WHEREAS, without universal standards for both the qualifications of voters and the methodology of voting across all 50 states, a National Popular Vote cannot meet the test of "one person one vote;"

WHEREAS, the National Popular Vote does not reflect a universal standard for the qualification of voters across all 50 states, as existing state and local laws differ on suffrage for non-citizens and convicted felons;

WHEREAS, proposals to lower the voting age requirement to 16 years old, such as has been proposed in the states of Oregon and Hawaii, could further establish non-universal standards for the qualification of voters;

WHEREAS, there is no universal standard for the methodology of voting across all 50 states, as existing state laws differ on requirements for voter identification, registration deadlines and voting by mail;

THEREFORE, we as citizens of Maine implore all members of the Maine Legislature to reject all proposals to award our votes in future US Presidential elections to the winner of a so-called "national popular vote" and preserve Maine's voice under the current Electoral College system.

    All the above is deeply disturbing.

    Do you know about Tammany Hall and Boss Tweed? So far an Internet search does provide historical accuracy to the Voter Manipulation that was done then and is now being repeated by the Democratic Party. This Legislation in Maine is as corrupt as Boss Tweed. Vote NO to being disenfranchised.

    Here is why;

    The Democratic Party wants to disenfranchise us and create a Totalitarian Fascist country (one of the Democratic Parties major donors is George Soros who has been linked to ANTIFA which has been described as being Neo Nazis and all one has to do is to do an internet search and our Yellow Press does not report on this nor does the Republican Party investigate and challenge the Dems as being Un-American. Their socialist agenda intends to deny Americans of our Constitutional rights and protections by subversion, privatizing municipalities ( creating a corporation like the Maine Municipal Association that does not have to adhere to Federal Voter laws) threat, revisionism ( book burning and destruction of monuments) and control of news reporting and turning the entertainment industry into a platform for their political agenda ( similar to the State run propaganda machines of North Korea and Communist/Socialist countries that deny freedom of speech etc.) ). All of their “Educational Reforms” have dumbed down the education of students and have turned High Schools and Colleges into indoctrination institutions for the Democratic Parties Totalitarian Fascist Agenda and behave more like High School and College Day Care centers instead of providing inspiration and preparation for their future. We need to stop the Yellow Press and bring back investigations into Un-American Activities and the revision of History that is going on and not repeat the mistakes of the past.

    Do you remember Tammany Hall, the Red Scare, the reasons behind the Sherman Anti Trust law? Do you know the history of father and son Richard Daley Democrats? You should look them up and also look up oligarchs.


    What have the Democratic Party done to protect us from Tuberculosis? The reason the Democrats want to open up our borders and permit extremist ghettos within the United States is to gather more voters for their agenda to strip us of our Constitutional rights and bankrupt us. The Democratic Party is engaged in a Hubris Cycle which causes hardships that never needs to happen – example look at the Affordable Health Care act which costs more and is a terrible financial burden to our country and by the way discriminates against older Americans and is financially unsustainable while providing a bureaucratic nightmare for patients, doctors and hospitals.

    Southern and Northern Maine have two different political party leanings with the South majority being Liberal/Socialist Pro Totalitarian Fascists and the North majority being Constitutional Conservatives that are financially responsible. For true and proper Voter Representation what we need in Maine is an Electoral College System otherwise what we are seeing is voter apathy because there is no equality for the Voters and their voice is squashed and disenfranchised. Does this sound familiar? Is the Democratic Parties agenda similar to King George 3rds tyranny? Taxation without Representation.

    Vote NO because without the Electoral College System Mainers and States that are less populated will lose representation for their taxpayers and the bullies will rule us and reach further into our pockets.


    The United States is in a Constitutional Crisis because we are being disenfranchised at the Federal, State and Local levels of government by the Democratic Parties Totalitarian Fascist Socialist agenda that is Un-American. Please consider legislation challenging wether Hollywood, the entertainment industry liberal press and Bob Igor’s Disney is distributing political propaganda and should be investigated and review all public school texts books for revisionism and political propaganda.

    First they initiate ranked choice voting. Now this. They just want a bunch of “experts” running things. They want to silence the people and deny our voice. This should all be considered unconstitutional.


    The electoral college exists to make sure the cities don’t overrule the people who live outside the cities. Maine is a perfect example of why the electoral college is a good thing. Too many state issues are just decided by people in Portland.

    There are at least 26,ooo registered voters in Maine who are not eligible adult citizens. There are almost 2 million in California. This is a way to steal the election.

    Please dont take away our future. Janet Mills is hell bent on destroying our state. If this passes along with her other lunacy driven policy, you will have a mass exodus out of the state.

    This is unconstitutional and I can’t believe Maine residents would agree to this legislation to lose their voice in the US government elections. There was a reason our founding fathers put the electoral college in place vs a popular vote. Maine voters need to wake up.

    Doing away with the Electoral College is a violation of the U.S. Constitution, which our legislators swore to uphold when they took office. Without the Electoral College, the fate of our country will be decided by a handful of big-population states, and Maine will have no chance of being heard.

    They swore to uphold the Constitution, yet they are violating it, and diminishing our State’s chances of having a voice.

    Do Not give our votes to away to another state!

    Protect the electoral college!

    Maine people want to preserve our right to vote!

    The fare and square way to vote is

    One person, one vote!

    Maine is a small voter state; we want our votes heard; to be counted.

    We want our right to vote protected.

    Preserving our constitutional right to vote is of the essence!

    Our voices must be heard!

    There’s no good reason to disgrace Maine people by taking away their fair and squar vote; by taking away our vioces.

    Maine people are ready to vote a fare and squar election.

    Having the right to vote is Not voting in a popularity contest.

    I believe this will destroy our right to vote fairly in elections. Why would you change this now unless there’s an agenda to under cut our votes! The way we vote has always worked well and should not be changed on a whim!! If this was to change it’s the people of this state that should be “voting” to do it or not, one party does not have the right to change things so it can benefit them!! If it’s not broke don’t fix it!!!
