The Maine Legislature may return for a new session to deal with issues like coronavirus fallout. The Maine CDC is reporting just 8 new cases of coronavirus and no additional deaths across the state over the last 24 hours. Today is primary election day in the state of Maine, with offices like US Senate, Congress, and local legislative offices on your ballot. Maine also has multiple bond issues up for a vote today. The Skowhegan State Fair is trying to hold the event in 2020 with social distancing and expanded guidelines, and the Maine Game Wardens helped to locate a missing Freeport woman just 300 yards from her home.
