The votes for same-day voter registration were not even a day old when some politicians were talking about the need to continue work against it.

I am but a simple citizen, but I believe politicians should heed this recent vote and voice of the people. That was an overwhelming vote, by the way.

Politicians are elected to serve all citizens of Maine. They should use their political capital for something the people of Maine told them we want them to work on: Reduce taxes, improve business climate and improve the lives of the people of Maine.
