Interesting. It does, however, mean I need to take umbrage with :

It may not be party platform, yet, but it does show one party is more interested in changing the system than another.

I saw, that and was surprised. I'll believe it when I see it. My guess is that the only reason that a Democrat signed onto this is because of LePage's 2014 victory where the D's got spoiled by an independent run and Angus King's hold on their senate seat. It's an act of self-preservation, not goodwill. It's not like I have any more faith that electoral reform will happen in safe blue states.

edit: After more research, Diane Russell seems pretty chill, even though I'm still skeptical of motivations. Would she have introduced this bill in a different state? Probably not.
