LEFT: HALLOWELL, ME – NOVEMBER 6: “It’s discouraging. It makes me embarrassed,” said Chris Flynn, left, 31, of Maine politics, after stopping at a coffee shop on Water Street with Garreth Brown, 25, on Thurs. Nov. 6, 2014. Flynn said he did not vote in the recent election because he is “disgusted” with politics. The town of Hallowell stands out as having the highest percentage of voters in the state who selected Democrat Mike Michaud in the Nov. 4 election. Michaud lost to incumbent Republican Paul LePage.

RIGHT: GREENE, ME – NOVEMBER 6: Byron Boyington before he welds an air compressed part outside his home in Greene, Maine, a town which voted heavily for Paul LePage in the gubernatorial election this week on Thursday, November 6, 2014. Boyington was born and raised in Aroostook County, and said he primarily votes Democratic, and voted mostly along that party line in the midterm elections this year. ” I am a democrat, and I was very seriously thinking about voting for LePage. There were a lot of things LePage has done that I thought was right, but one of the things I don’t like is that he ended three of my health insurances. The health insurance I have, the state doesn’t pay for it, I pay for it out of my own pocket. When he did that, there were a bunch of insurances that weren’t allowed to work in the state of Maine anymore. I didn’t vote for him because of that, but I considered it,” Boyington said.
