Maine Voter ID: At What Price? The Cost to Implement a Voter ID Law in Maine

November 19, 2012

In 2011, legislators considered a bill requiring all Maine voters to present photo identification before they are allowed to vote. The legislature subsequently amended the bill to study Maine’s election laws. To inform this evaluation, the Maine Center for Economic Policy (MECEP) analyzed the costs to implement a voter identification (ID) law in Maine. MECEP estimates a minimum implementation cost for voter ID for three years at $3.8 million.
