Voter ID For ME Is Half Way Home

‘Voter ID for ME’ is a petition initiative driven by The Dinner Table to get the Voter ID question on the ballot so the people of Maine can decide the fate of requiring an ID to cast your vote in The Pine Tree State. On June 11, over 350 volunteers manned the voting locations across the state to gather signatures on the petition and had an amazing, successful day. Those hard-working patriots gathered 40,163 signatures in one day. That number of signatures is nearly half the 100,000 needed to get the question on the ballot.

I had the pleasure of watching this initiative grow and gather momentum, and I am proud to have been a member of the team. Working the phones behind the scenes, I was amazed at how receptive people were to the petition drive and also to volunteer their help. The tools and support the leadership group gave us paid off, and we were rewarded with incredible results.

The Dinner Table (TDT) is Maine’s largest and most active grassroots conservative PAC. The goal of TDT is to flip the Maine statehouse red by recruiting conservative candidates and focusing on initiatives like Voter ID for Me. The name, The Dinner Table, was inspired by Ronald Reagan, who said, “All great change in America begins at the dinner table.” The founders, Alex Titcomb and Maine State Rep Laurel Libby are staunch conservatives committed to ending the liberal stranglehold on the state and returning common sense and traditional Maine values to Augusta.

My primary residence is in New Hampshire, but I spend every summer in central Maine. Having witnessed the direction of the state over the last few years prompted me to get involved with The Dinner Table, and not just with a donation. I wanted to get involved and help recover this beautiful state. Maine has the worst education system and the third-highest individual tax burden. The current group of politicians is destroying the lobster and fishing industries with excessive regulations. They are committed to making Maine the marijuana capital of the northeast. They are bowing to Planned Parenthood and passed the most liberal abortion bill in the country. They also have made Maine a sanctuary destination for juveniles seeking abortion and transgender services. The children and taxpayers deserve better, and Alex and Laurel are motivated to deliver results.

The Republicans are at a disadvantage in every election. The mainstream media will play up the Dems regardless of the record, and they will use scare tactics to turn people off to any Republican. Rachel Maddow, the one-day-a-week star of MSNBC, will not play the audio of any Trump event, claiming it is her responsibility to keep misinformation from the public. Is that censorship, election interference, or both? The Republicans also play by the rules, while Dems will stretch the rules to their advantage whenever possible.

It is because of this disadvantage that we need groups like The Dinner Table to stir up the base and conservative writers to flood the internet with the truth. If you want more information on the Dinner Table and to join the movement, click here: The Dinner Table.
