Maine League of Young Voters Announces 2012 Official Candidate Endorsements
The Maine League of Young Voters has released their list of candidate endorsements 9see below); one surprise was that they chose not to endorse a US Senate candidate at all. Via email blast:
We have officially made our endorsements for the November 6th election!
Just scroll down for a full list of our endorsements for each issue and race.
All volunteers who’ve given us eight hours of their time over the past year were invited to vote on who we decided to endorse at our annual Project Vote meeting, held last night.
Our elections committee formulated a questionnaire and only candidates who answered that questionnaire were eligible for our endorsement. We’ll have all of the questionnaires available on our website early next week.
If you have any further questions, we have tons of great resources over on our website, as well.
Want to help make our endorsements next year? Then come hang out and volunteer with us for eight hours over the course of the next year — and get started today!
