• In an article in some editions on Wednesday, Nov. 4, the campaign manager for No on 1-Protect Maine Equality, Jesse Connolly, was quoted as pledging that his side “will not quit until we know where every single one of these votes lives.” Connolly, who was speaking to supporters at a time when the voting results from a number of precincts had yet to be reported, was referring to his campaign’s plans to make sure every vote cast on the same-sex marriage referendum was counted. Connolly said he was not implying that individual voters for or against Question 1 should be identified.

The full quotation is printed here to provide additional context: “We have always said this would be a razor-thin election and that’s exactly what it is. We have the cities, but we don’t have all of the towns. We have the towns, but we don’t have all of the absentee ballots. If you ever doubted for one moment the power of a single vote, well, tonight should dispel that notion. Voting does matter. Every vote counts. And I promise you: We will not quit until we know where every single one of these votes lives.”
