Maine's Special Referendum Election will be July 14th this year.

Secretary Dunlap sent out a press release on Friday sharing the two bond questions that we Mainers will be voting on at that time that will affect infrastructure improvements to roads and internet additions for the state.

Transportation Bond (PL 673, Sec. A-9)

Do you favor a $105,000,000 bond issue for improvement of highways and bridges statewide and for multimodal facilities or equipment related to transit, freight and passenger railroads, aviation, ports, harbors, marine transportation and active transportation projects, to be used to match an estimated $275,000,000 in federal and other funds?

Internet Infrastructure Bond (PL 673, Sec. B-10)

Do you favor a $15,000,000 bond issue to invest in high-speed internet infrastructure for unserved and underserved areas, to be used to match up to $30,000,000 in federal, private, local or other funds?

The order of how these two questions will appear on the ballot (which one will be first or second) will be determined on Tuesday, April 21st at 11 AM.

We can watch the drawing take place on Facebook at the Maine Secretary of State's Facebook page.
