Officials are scrambling to sort out Maine’s ranked choice voting system ahead of the June primary. On Wednesday, March 28, 2018, the Secretary of State’s office proposed emergency rulemaking to establish guidelines for implementing the ranked choice system. However, on March 29, Secretary of State Matt Dunlap indicated in a briefing to the Veterans and Legal Affairs Committee that his office had learned of potential legal concerns with implementing ranked choice voting for the primaries. His statements indicate that his office intends to move forward with implementing a ranked choice voting system for the upcoming primary elections, but that he believes there is a genuine conflict of law that could be challenged in court. The confusion surrounding this issue raises genuine concern about the upcoming June primaries.
