Polls close in Maine with no reported problems

Voters set a record for a statewide, referendum-only election, according to Secretary of State Shenna Bellows.

PORTLAND, Maine — Polls have closed in Maine.

Voters had their say on a power line to serve as a conduit for Canadian hydropower and a constitutional amendment to enshrine the right to grow, raise, harvest and produce food.

Secretary of State Shenna Bellows says there were no reported problems Tuesday.

Bellows said more than 120,000 Mainers requested absentee ballots, setting a record for a statewide, referendum-only election.

The size of the voter turnout remains a question.

NEWS CENTER Maine will have updated results as they are released.
