Maine law makes it easy to cast an absentee ballot. You don't have to be out-of-town or have any other reason to take advantage of this easy way to vote at a time that is most convenient for you.
  • Early Voting: Any registered voter may cast an absentee ballot instead of voting in person at a voting place on Election Day.
    • You may vote absentee at the clerk's office as soon as absentee ballots are available.
    • You don't need to complete an application if you vote in person at the clerk's office.
  • Absentee Voting: Absentee ballots are available at least 30 days before the election at the municipal clerk's office.
