Take Action on Immigrant Voting!
Make your voice heard at the upcoming Charter Commission Public Hearing!
Last spring we worked hard to try to extend voting rights to non-citizens in
local elections, where immigrants are a vital, active part of our Maine
communities. While the bill didn't get out of committee, our strong presence has fueled momentum to get non-citizen voting passed locally in
Right now, the newly elected Portland Charter Commission will be
considering a number of electoral and governmental reform issues in the
next few weeks. We have a real opportunity to make sure this
initiative passes, but the only way we can see this happen in our city
is to testify at the next Charter Commission meeting this Thursday,
July 30th at 5:30pm.
