Description:

Ms. Luther is a member, and treasurer, of the League of Women Voters of Maine, and Maine Citizens for Clean Elections.

What constitutes election fraud and where is it happening? Are voters’ rights, and is participation, restricted by recent policies and legal actions? How is Maine doing? What are the national trends? Is “ranked-choice” or “instant run-off voting” in Maine’s future?

In her work for the League, Ann has worked for greater public understanding of key public policy issues and for the League’s priority issues in Clean Elections & Campaign Finance Reform, Voting Rights, Ethics in Government, and Repeal of Term Limits.

She was awarded the 2013 Baldwin Award by the ACLU of Maine in recognition of her work for voting rights and elections.
