AUGUSTA — A coalition group hoping to gather enough signatures to overturn the recently passed law that would eliminate same-day voter registration said their goal is to get a statewide vote on the fall ballot. The statement came during a State House press conference today.

They must gather 57,277 valid signatures in about one month to qualify, otherwise even if they are successful in gathering that number of signatures the question won’t go to voters until next June.

The coalition is led by the League of Women Voters of Maine and includes support from the Maine Civil Liberties Union, Disability Rights Center of Maine, the Maine People’s Alliance, the Maine League of Young Voters, the Maine Women’s Lobby, the Maine Democratic Party and others.

Charlie Webster, chairman of the Maine Republican Party, recently led a successful people’s veto to repeal a tax reform measure. He said he doubted they would be able to meet their goal of making it onto the November ballot because of how long it takes to gather enough signatures.
