Dozens of young people packed the State House Wednesday to stand up for their rights.
A bill before legislators would prohibit out of state students who are housed at the school from voting.
The proposal comes from representative Gary Knight who says the bill is meant to make sure people are casting their votes in their proper state.
Opponents of the bill claim if it passes it would send the wrong message to young people in maine..
he legal and veterans affairs committee heard testimony from both sides and have scheduled a work session regarding the bill for next week.
