MIDCOAST BOOK CLUB
Join with us in reading Let the People Pick the President, by Jessie Wegman.  This book is a great lead in to the League of Women Voters of Maine's 2021 priority for the National Popular Vote Compact.  The Midcoast Chapter will be referencing this book as we join in LWVME 2021 efforts.

 

WHAT WE DO
HR 1 - For the People Act
To create the kind of change voters want to see in our democracy, our next administration and Congress must support the passage of HR 1 — the For the People Act — a once-in-a-generation democracy reform package to clean up our political system, get big money out of politics, hold elected officials accountable for corruption, expand and protect voting rights, and create a democracy that values the voices of all Americans. Read more about HR 1 from the Brennan Center here. Contact Senator King and Senator Collins and urge them to support HR 1 in 2021.
