Here are the results of the November 6, 2018 Question 1 Home-based Assistance state referendum as they roll in from municipalities in Knox and Waldo counties.
Question 1 on the 2018 General Election ballot was introduced by Maine People’s Alliance in an effort, according to the organization, to establish a Universal Home Care program that will “provide in-home and community support services for all people with disabilities living in Maine who require assistance” and “make homecare a more attractive career, including higher wages and greater professionalization.”
The proposed Act To Establish Universal Home Care for Seniors and Persons with Disabilities asks Maine voters if they want to create the Universal Home Care Program to provide home-based assistance to people with disabilities and senior citizens, regardless of income, funded by a new 3.8 percent tax on individuals and families with Maine wage and adjusted gross income above the amount subject to Social Security taxes, which is $128,400 in 2018.
