PORTLAND, ME – – Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap announced last week that proponents of a new casino in southern Maine have submitted signatures for “An Act to Allow Slot Machines or a Casino in York County.” If enough signatures are verified as registered Maine voters, that means Mainers could vote on the issue during a statewide referendum in 2017. A similar bid to put the question on a ballot failed earlier this year after Dunlap ruled more than half of 91,000 signatures submitted were found to be invalid.
