Pursuant to Chapter 445 of the Public Laws of 2019, the State of Maine will conduct a Presidential Primary on March 3, 2020. Both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party certified to the Secretary of State that there was a contest for the party's presidential nomination. Candidates are now circulating petitions and must submit these petitions to the municipal officals for certification. The deadline for candidates to file petitions with the Secretary of State is December 23, 2019.
A referendum election will also be held on March 3, 2020 for voters to determine the people's veto of Chapter 154 of the Public Laws of 2019 -- "An Act To Protect Maine Children from Preventable Diseases by Repealing Certain Exemptions from the Laws Governing Immunizations Requirements."
