Governor LePage tells Maine to vote no on referendum questions

Maine Gov. LePage Says Vote No (on all).

LEWISTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Governor Paul LePage has been very vocal about the fact that he is voting no on every referendum question on the ballot this year. He listed reasons why he thinks voters should do the same at a Rotary Lunch in Lewiston this afternoon.
 
He says ranked choice voting and background checks are unconstitutional in our state, and that that legalizing marijuana will have a lot of unintended consequences.
 
When asked if he thinks that Maine voters are misinformed when it comes to the referendum questions, LePage said "they are misinformed about politics totally," and that a lot of the things people are hearing in TV ads are outright lies.
 
LePage continued to say that he is going to try to pass a bill in January that requires petitions for referendum questions to have an equal percentage of signatures from all 16 counties before they can be put on the ballot.
