It's time to rally. Governor Mills has vetoed a bill, LD 1610, that received bipartisan support in both the House and Senate. It's widely popular among voters because LD 1610 will stop foreign government spending in Maine elections.

The fight's not over, and it's time to apply some pressure. The Legislature can override the veto when they return to Augusta next Tuesday, July 25. You can help by sending a quick message to your legislator — ask them to support this bipartisan legislation and override the Governor's veto. We've made it easy, too. Click here to send a message ASAP.

The veto is incredibly disappointing. The Governor is overlooking the will of the voters, refusing to protect our elections from foreign governmental influence. The opponents of this initiative are few, foreign, and financially unfettered. Let's not let them have the final say. Mainers deserve to stand up for our people-powered democracy.

Ahead of the veto vote, we'll also rally in front of the State House at 9:30 AM on Tuesday. Click here to RSVP.
