Sen. Curry earns perfect score from Democracy Maine for 2021 legislative record
AUGUSTA — Sen. Chip Curry, D-Belfast, received a perfect score from Democracy Maine’s 2021 Legislative Scorecard for his voting record to clean up state government, get money out of politics and safeguard democracy. Sen. Curry was one of 15 members of the Maine Senate to earn a perfect score.
“Having fair and free elections ensures trust in our government,” said Sen. Curry. “Maine people need to be able to have confidence in our elections. That’s why I supported legislation that helps ensure access to the ballot through honest and transparent measures and initiatives that ensure accountability from our elected officials.”
This session, Sen. Curry supported legislation to open up Maine’s primary system to unenrolled voters, to ban corporate contributions in elections, and to allow for online voter registration, along with other measures protecting the voting rights of Maine people.
Democracy Maine is a collaboration between three nonpartisan organizations — the League of Women Voters of Maine, Maine Citizens for Clean Elections and Maine Students Vote — that work together to lead Maine in advocating for voter rights, campaign finance reform, modern and secure elections, government ethics, and voter education and engagement.
The coalition scored nine initiatives considered by the 130th Maine Legislature. Democracy Maine’s 2021 Legislative Scorecard can be viewed at democracymaine.org/2021scorecard.
