Voter campaign head named

The Associated Press

PORTLAND  — A small-business owner and 13-year Navy veteran from North Yarmouth is leading a coalition seeking to defeat the people's veto question that tops the Maine referendum ballot.

Christopher Tyll says he got involved in the campaign because he believes the public debate has turned into another partisan battle. Tyll says voter fraud isn't the issue, but potential voter fraud is.

A yes vote on Nov. 8 repeals the newly enacted state law that requires voters to register at least two business days before an election. A no vote leaves that law intact and replaces Maine's current policy allowing Election Day registration.
