Primary – June 8, 2010
The following are brief profiles of the candidates for Governor. They will face off in their respective Primary Races on June 8th. Maine has a “closed primary” meaning only Registered Republicans vote in the Republican Primary, only Registered Democrats vote in the Democratic Primary, and only registered Green Independents vote in the Green Independent Primary. Candidates are listed alphabetically, grouped by party. Independent or Unenrolled Candidates do not have a primary, candidates who meet qualification requirements automatically appear on the General Election ballot in November, and they are not included.
