Student oppose anti-voting laws

Maine Beacon - Lawmakers in Augusta heard testimony from Maine students speaking out against Republican-sponsored legislation to restrict voting rights. The two bills, one to require Photo ID to vote and the other to impose new hoops for student voters to jump through were criticized as unnecessary and discriminatory.

Also opposing the bills were Maine’s Attorney General and Secretary of State, the American Civil Liberties Union, the NAACP, the Maine People’s Alliance, the League of Women Voters, Maine Student Action and Equality Maine.
