Request an absentee ballot
Our daily routines have been upended. Yet, as we're busy adjusting to a new normal, the new July primary will be here before we know it. The upcoming races will have serious consequences for all of us. With both your safety and the importance of making your voice heard in mind, we’re encouraging you to vote by absentee ballot.
If you are already registered to vote, you can request an absentee ballot here from now until Election Day, but we suggest you make a plan to vote now to ensure your ballot is received on time. The Bureau of Elections website has a great FAQ page with more information on how absentee voting works.
Not registered? Here's how.
You can now download and print a copy of Maine’s voter registration card from your home. Completed voter registration cards, along with necessary documentation, may be mailed to your town office or city hall or sent to the Secretary of State's office in Augusta. You may be able to drop them off at your town office, but call first. Here's the State of Maine voter guide with more information.
New voters who register by mail must provide a copy of certain identity documents with the completed registration form. The mail-in registrant may submit a copy of a Maine driver’s license or other valid photo ID, a current utility bill, a bank statement, a paycheck stub, or other government document that shows the voter’s current name and address.
Governor Mills issues voting executive order
We applaud Gov. Mills for issuing a critical election executive order last week to move Maine's primary election from June 9 to July 14. In an important move to ensure the health and safety of voters, allowing all eligible voters to request absentee ballots with no excuse up to and including Election Day. The governor's order also extends the deadline for qualifying contributions under the state's clean election law to May 19.
