Maine: Marijuana Ballot Question Recount Could Take Weeks
By Derrick Stanley
The Maine Department of the Secretary of State said today that recounts of a pair of ballot questions could take four to six weeks.
Ballot questions that legalized recreational marijuana and approved a tax on high earners to fund public education are both facing recounts. The department is getting ready to announce a schedule for the recounts.
Both measures were narrowly passed by voters on November 8.
The two recounts will likely take place at the same time and may begin as soon as this week.
