AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine voters go to the polls Tuesday to decide a proposal that would fund advancements in aquaculture, marine technology, forestry and agriculture.
The Maine Technology Institute would distribute $45 million in grants for upgrades in those fields.
The Small Enterprise Growth Fund would direct the remaining $5 million to qualifying small businesses in fields like marine sciences, biotechnology and manufacturing.
It's the only item on the statewide ballot.
Elections officials anticipate a low turnout because of the absence of state and federal candidates on the ballot. But voters will decide municipal elections and local referendums.
