Seven eerie spirits share their stories of the voting practices of their time in Portland, Maine, as well as those of the country's early days. You'll hear about their efforts to win women access to the ballot box, or how they argued against the very idea. As always, the event presents real people—portrayed by costumed actors—who have returned from their restful sleep to offer perspectives on history in a very personal—often humorous—manner. The stories were written and directed by Lynne Cullen. Hannah Rafkin is the mastermind behind the video and editing of the spooky event.

Not only is the event online only this year, it’s FREE! due to support of Spirits Alive’s generous sponsors, and a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Donations are welcome and are what Spirits Alive relies upon for all our conservation and educational activities. Your tax deductible gifts and the support of our generous sponsors enable us to repair and maintain the 200- to 300-year-old cemetery markers and monuments! They also allow us to bring you knowledgeable and entertaining speakers during our annual Winter Lecture Series. Thank you!
