A historic democratic experiment before Maine primary voters and an allegation of money laundering facing the Maine Democratic Party prompted news outlets to seek insight from Professor of Government Mike Franz.
Franz, who teaches a course on polling, shared observations and expertise for a Maine Public Radio story highlighting the fact that when Maine voters head to the polls Tuesday, June 12, they’ll be the first in the country to use ranked-choice voting in a statewide election.

A WGME/CBS 13 I-Team story looking into a Federal Election Commission complaint alleging money laundering involving the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Maine Democratic Party and dozens of other state parties across the country also tapped Franz, an expert on campaign finance.
