Mainers came out, wore masks and stood 6 feet apart on Tuesday to cast their votes in the state’s primary election.
That ballot includes the Republican primary for the second congressional district — with Adrienne Bennett, Eric Brakey and Dale Crafts — and the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate — with Sara Gideon, Bre Kidman and Betsy Sweet — as well as numerous other local races and questions.
