Don’t miss your next election!
Some cities and towns will hold local election in Maine on Nov. 2nd. Check with your local elections office to determine what elections are happening in your area. The mail-in voter registration is Oct 12th. In person voter registration is available through Election Day.
You can vote in person with an absentee ballot, on Election Day, or vote by mail in Maine.
Your polling place hours vary by location, with start times between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
By party rules, only registered voters affiliated with a particular party may vote in its state primary. Please see Maine’s Democratic Party and Republican Party websites for details.
In 2020, Maine transitioned from holding a caucus to a primary system presidential preference elections. In order to participate, existing Maine voters who have previously been registered with another party must make sure they are affiliated with their party of choice fifteen days before the election.
New voters and those previously unaffiliated may register to vote and declare their party up to the election day, including in person at the polling location.
Some congressional seats, state offices and constitutional amendments may be included on the ballot.
