Maine Citizens for Clean Elections was formed to promote a referendum on campaig
Maine Citizens for Clean Elections was formed to promote a referendum on campaign finance reform, which will be on the November ballot as Question 3. The referendum has gained support from groups backing campaign finance reform across the country, and many see Maine as one of the movement's key tests to date. The Maine Civil Liberties Union has announced that is plans to challenge Question 3 in court on constitutional grounds if it passes, and most observers expect it will. Question 3 has been overshadowed by the clear-cutting referendum and its alternatives, but if enacted it would profoundly change the way political races are conducted in Maine.
