I can use more voter registration cards for Saturday. Portland City Hall clerk's office will only give out 5 at a time. I need people to drop by their town or city halls to pick up some cards.
I'm also looking for someone who has a card table. PM me at hbakerhart@icloud.com.

You can contact the Secretary of State office for voter registration cards as well.

go get some printed, Kinkos?

The town hall in New Gloucester refused to give me any. Is this typical, or is this just New Gloucester?

Does the party have any?

Hmm I think it is just New Gloucester.

Sounds like voter suppression to me.

I put in an order from the Sec. of State.

The good news is I have plenty of voter registration cards. There is no bad news.

“All humans have what is called a ‘confirmation bias’,” Street explained. “This simply means that we look for data that supports what we believe and suspect to be true, instead of data that opposes what we believe, which is the way scientist approach a hypothesis. Scientific thinking prevents us from ‘shooting from the hip’ and making decisions and coming to conclusions in error. You don’t have to be a scientist to have critical scientific thinking skills.”

Street believes the lack of scientific thinking has a great impact on misunderstandings surrounding the environment.

Scarborough Town Hall with Democratic LeadershipApril 19, 2017, 6:00pmCamp KetchaDemocratic leaders from all over the state are heading to Scarborough to engage in a community conversation about their priorities in Augusta. Speaker of the House Sara Gideon and Senate Democratic Leader Troy Jackson will introduce their Opportunity Agenda for Maine.

The plan calls for the largest property tax cut in Maine history; invests in jobs and the economy; fully funds public schools; makes college degrees more affordable and attainable; supports families, seniors, children and veterans; and provides meaningful student debt relief. And it does it all without unnecessary cuts and without raising new taxes.

Participants include House Majority Leader Erin Herbig, Assistant Senate Democratic Leader Nate Libby and Assistant House Democratic Leader Jared Golden. Members of the Cumberland and York county delegation, along with other municipal elected officials, will also be present.

Join us at Camp Ketcha on Black Point Road for brief comments from legislative leaders and an extended Q&A. Make your voice heard!

Fellow Cumberland County Dems, as many of you know, I am an organizer with Maine Citizens for Clean Elections, and we are putting on (along with the Committee for Ranked Choice Voting and the League of Women Voters) a "Stronger Democracy Volunteer Convention" on Sunday April 23rd, at Thomas College in Waterville. The convention will run from 9:30 - 3:30; it's free and we will be providing breakfast, lunch, and Ben & Jerry's ice cream!

This will be a great skills-building opportunity for folks who want to learn more about the latest about efforts to get money out of politics, implement Ranked Choice Voting, and make it easier for Mainers to register to vote! There will be workshops covering such topics as organizing, lobbying, and facilitating an in-district meeting with your state rep. or senator.

I know Waterville is a bit of a trek, but I hope some of you will be able to make it. Please sign up via the online registration link on the event page.

Additionally, I know you are very politically active, and I am hoping you'll be willing to share this invite in your personal and professional networks as well.

Hope to see you there, and thanks!
