Portland voters won’t get to decide this fall on whether to allow non-citizen legal residents to vote in the city’s local elections. The Portland City Council voted Monday night to send a potential ballot question to a local council committee instead of to voters, saying the measure still needed substantial work.

PORTLAND, Maine - Maine residents are joining with members of the state's immigrant community to rally for the rights of non-native Americans.
 
The rally is planned for 6 p.m. Monday in Congress Square Park in Portland. Speakers will include Sue Roche of Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project and Hamdia Ahmed, a local activist from University of Southern Maine.
