Portland, Maine Votes to Add Teeth to Ban on Facial Recognition

Voters in Portland, Maine passed a ballot initiative that strengthens the city’s ban on the use of facial recognition by law enforcement and city agencies.

The City Council previously passed an order banning face surveillance, but the initiative strengthens the ban with a private right of action and penalties for violations of the law.

A growing list of cities have banned facial recognition technology, including Boston, Oakland, San Francisco, and Portland, Oregon.
