Maine Election Laws Should Be Bipartisan-Made Rules

As a Mainer, I am tired of the extreme politics being done in the state by those on the left and those on the right in regards to the issue of allowing people to register to vote on Election Day in Maine. The law allowing this should have never been repealed by the state legislature. Instead a bipartisan effort should have been attempted to address any concerns any Mainers had with the law and then the law should have been changed in a way that was fair to all sides if needed. For example, some Mainers had a concern that the law created too much paperwork for election clerks on Election Day handling an ever growing number of voter registration applications in years when a major election is being held. Well, that is a concern that a bipartisan effort could have taken a look at and found a fair-minded solution to. In repealing this law, the state legislature took the easy way out because many members of the body didnt want a fair-minded solution to the problem. Instead all they wanted was a political strife with the other side and that is not the way politics should be conducted in Maine.
