The League of Women Voters of Maine Education Fund has released its Easy-to-Read Voter Guide for the June 12 primary election. This is the League’s 11th Voter Guide and its first guide for primary elections. This guide covers  the Democratic and Republican primaries for governor, federal races for the U.S. House of Representatives in Districts 1 and 2, and the U.S. Senate race. It also covers the special referendum election, open to all voters regardless of party affiliation, featuring one ballot question that will be decided by voters on June 12th.

The 2018 primary also marks the first time in our nation’s history that ranked choice voting will be used in a statewide primary election. Maine voters will use RCV to choose the Democratic and Republican nominees for governor and the Democratic nominee for the U.S. House of Representative race in Congressional District 2. (There is also an RCV primary in state legislative district 75, although that race is not covered in the statewide voter guide.)

A company’s physical work environment has a tremendous impact on productivity, profits and employee recruitment and retention. As more firms are drawn to the “agile office” when they move locations or redesign, finding the balance between flexible space, sound level management and a sense of routine can be a challenge. Join a panel of experts for a free discussion of the benefits and detriments to breaking out of the office space box.
