In Maine, you don't have to wait until Election Day to vote. You can skip Election Day lines and vote early at a time that's convenient for you.
Vote Early in Person
All voters are eligible to vote early in person - no excuse is needed.
You can vote early in person at your municipal clerk's office from 30-45 days before election day and ends on election day
Contact information for your municipal clerk's office is available here
Vote Early by Mail
All voters in Maine may vote early by mail - no excuse is needed.
To vote early by mail, complete the absentee ballot application found here
or submit an application to your Municipal Clerk's office.
There is no set deadline to apply for an absentee ballot application. However, you should apply as soon as possible to ensure that you are able to return your completed absentee ballot on time.
Once you have completed your absentee ballot, you must return it so that your Municipal Clerk's office receives it by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
