Overseas absentee ballots increased Yes on 1’s lead by 1,782 votes
Portland, ME — With the official results from the overseas ballots announced, the Yes on 1 campaign increased their margin of votes to over 4,600. Those ballots can be located on the Maine Secretary of State’s website.
“Based on reports from towns and the state, we estimate to have won by over 4,600 votes. We understand the opposition is disappointed, but Maine voters have spoken and they have passed Question 1. We hope that the No on 1 campaign will concede and work with us to successfully implement Question 1 over the coming months,” said David Boyer, campaign manager for Yes on 1.
