AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine lawmakers are going to consider a proposal to address the use of video recording at polling places.

The Legislative Council on Thursday voted to forward to lawmakers a bill sponsored by Sen. Bill Diamond of Windham. It’s entitled, “An Act to Protect Maine Voters from Intimidating Videotaping at the Polls.”

Diamond said his bill would give election wardens clear authority to remove people who are videotaping at the polls. He said the idea is to prevent the intimidation of voters.

Last month, a group calling itself Project Dirigo videotaped voters who signed a gun control petition that was circulated at polling places on Election Day.
