RECORDS - Check out the pro-choice status of local candidates

This election season, if you'd sooner gouge out your own eyes than vote for a pro-life candidate, log on to, a new site launched this week by the Family Planning Action Fund of Maine, the Maine Women's Lobby, and Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. The site includes voting records and survey results from local candidates on issues related to reproductive choice. You'll need this to make sure you vote your conscience and avoid any subsequent eye-gouging. Gubernatorial and legislative candidates are reviewed and you can click on a link to register to vote. It's both handy and progressive.

Day to vote is November 7.
