Maine Ballot Question Recounts Could Take 4 to 6 Weeks
AUGUSTA, Maine - The Maine Department of the Secretary of State says recounts of a pair of ballot questions will likely take four to six weeks.
The department is getting ready to announce a schedule for the recounts. The recounts have been requested for ballot questions that legalized recreational marijuana and approved a tax on high earners to fund public education.
Voters narrowly passed both measures on Nov. 8.
The department says it will make an announcement as soon as Monday about when the recounts will begin. The recounts are likely to start as soon as this week.
The two recounts will likely take place at the same time.
