Ever thought about running for office? How about working on a campaign? PDCC is excited to collaborate with Maine Dems to host an awesome workshop to get you started. We hope you can join us! (And there will be 🍕🍕🍕!)


In lieu of hosting a Mayoral Debate, PDCC is excited to be working on a questionnaire that will be put to the Mayoral candidates and allow readers to compare candidates’ answers side-by-side. The best part? We want YOUR voice included! Fill out the form HERE with your questions for the mayoral candidates by mid-October and we will include as many as possible in our questionnaire. Keep an eye out towards the end of October for the candidates’ answers.

2023 Citizen’s Guide to the Referendum Election

Wondering what referendum questions are going to appear on the ballot this fall, and how you might vote?

This comprehensive guide, compiled by the Secretary of State’s Office in conjunction with the Attorney General, the State Treasurer,  and the Office of Fiscal and Program Review, is a comprehensive, non-partisan, and unbiased resource that can help voters gain clarity on these important issues ahead of the November 7th election. Happy reading!
