Election News & Presidential Primaries

The words Primary Elections on a scrap of paper in front of a flag
Maine Public

Note: Originally, we had Rick Steves scheduled for this day; he had to reschedule to March 20th.

Maine's Presidential primary elections are coming up next week, on Super Tuesday. We'll learn about the state's shift to hold "semi-open" primaries, and discuss other election issues, from the national popular vote to election integrity to what's happening in the Presidential race. We'll also discuss other matters that the Secretary of State oversees, including license plates and Real ID.

Panelist:
Shenna Bellows, Maine Secretary of State
Ron Schmidt,professor of political science, University of Southern Maine

Jonathan was born in Monsey, New York. A field trip to Washington, DC when he was in 7th grade started him on his circuitous path to a career in public radio. The trip inspired a love of politics and led to his desire to one day call DC home. After graduating from Grinnell College, he worked on a couple of campaigns in Iowa (presidential and congressional) and moved to Washington, DC.
