Dana Interviewed About Voter Fraud Report

Comments from UMaine Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Student Robert Dana were included in a Kennebec Journal article about a report that the Maine Republican Party has discovered cases of voter fraud among college students in Maine. Dana told the newspaper that UMaine’s nonpartisan get-out-the-vote program, UVote, has boosted voter participation on campus. Democratic House Minority Leader Emily Cain, a UMaine doctoral student who works in the Honors College, said the Republicans are trying to disenfranchise college voters.
