Why do DA’s matter

District attorneys have tremendous power and, traditionally, very little oversight or accountability. District attorneys have the power to impact the lives of millions of people. If someone is accused of committing a crime, it is not the police but the district attorney who has the sole power to decide if criminal charges are filed and how severe those charges will be. District attorneys get to decide who deserves to go to jail and who will instead be routed into a diversion program to help rebuild their life, or have charges dismissed.

The ACLU is strictly a nonpartisan organization. We take no position on any of the candidates. Our goal is to educate voters about where the candidates running for district attorney stand on critical issues related criminal justice.

Why is ACLU Maine involved in this election

The ACLU has a long history of working to educate voters on where candidates and office holders stand on ACLU issues, for example, by publishing scorecards and legislator’s voting histories. Given the importance of local district attorneys, the ACLU is now committed to ensuring that voters have as much information about where district attorney candidates stand on issues. However, the ACLU does not endorse any of the candidates. Our goal is to educate voters about where the district attorney candidates stand on critical issues related to criminal justice.
