POLL RESULTS: Should Maine Rename Columbus Day?
Last week, the city of Bangor announced that it would rename Columbus Day, and celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day in its place.

As of 11 p.m. on August 31st, we counted a total of 568 votes, 248 respondents, or 43.6%, said yes. 288 respondents, or 50.7%, said no. About 6% weren’t sure.
