Polls and anecdotal evidence show a significant number of voters switching from Libby Mitchell to Eliot Cutler in the waning days of the Maine gubernatorial race out of concern about the likely election of Paul LePage.
Equality Maine, for instance, sent out an email today asking supporters to "please vote for the pro-marriage candidate who you believe has the best chance of beating LePage" and included a polling average showing Cutler several points ahead of Mitchell.
The Cutler campaign sent their own email today alerting voters that they can take back an already-submitted absentee ballot and cast a new vote. It's a procedure that would have to be done before municipalities begin processing absentee votes, which could happen today in some towns. It's not clear how many voters would be willing to go through this procedure to switch their vote, but it shows Cutler isn't missing any chance to pick up some last-minute support.
The opposite message rang out  in the Lewiston Armory last night, as Bill Clinton urged Democrats not to give up and insisted that they still had time to turn the election around in Mitchell's favor.
If you're having second thoughts about your vote in the election prediction pool , feel free to submit a second form. Only the last submission will be counted. The pool will close when the polls open tomorrow, so hurry.
