Democracy Maine is a collaboration between two nonpartisan organizations - League of Women Voters of Maine and Maine Citizens for Clean Elections - that joined forces in 2018 to strengthen their advocacy and education efforts.
As Democracy Maine, we work together and with other partners to make government more equitable, inclusive, and accessible by improving elections, protecting and engaging voters, and reducing the influence of private money in politics.
Examples of our projects and programs include:
LWVME is a chapter of the League of Women Voters, a citizens' organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage our communities in the decisions that impact our lives. The League operates at national, state, and local levels through more than 800 state and local Leagues in all 50 states, as well DC, the Virgin Islands, and Hong Kong.
Maine Citizens for Clean Elections is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization working to ensure that Maine’s campaign finance laws, elections, and government serve the public interest, both in principle and in practice. We engage Maine people from across the political spectrum, using research, education, and outreach to further fairness, inclusion, and opportunity in our politics.
