Ballot questions, Waldo County results

Nov 06, 2018

In additional to local, state and national candidates on the ballot Nov. 6, voters also will decide a citizen initiative regarding Universal Home Care and four bond questions.

Approval of the Universal Home Care Program would have resulted in a new 3.8-percent tax to adjusted gross income above $128,400, according to information posted on the Maine Secretary of State’s website. That measure was defeated statewide, with Waldo County results mirroring.

The bond questions seek funding for improving water quality, roads and bridges, and the University of Maine and community college systems. Waldo County voters approved all of these bonds. Statewide, questions 2 and 4 remain in limbo until all results have been reported, according to Portland Press Herald.

Results shown below are how Waldo County towns voted on each ballot question and do not reflect the statewide results.
