Maine's Secretary of State Announces:
Launch of Enhanced Online Absentee Ballot Request Service
Maine’s Secretary of State announced that the Online Absentee Ballot Request Service for the November 4 general and referendum election is now available. The service has been enhanced to facilitate requests from emergency aid workers and displaced voters should a state of emergency occur that requires aid workers or voters to relocate. This option will be available only during a state of emergency and offers functionality similar to requests from Maine residents who are stationed in the military or residing in another country.
The Online Absentee Ballot Request Service is available by clicking here.
All Maine municipalities are required to accept electronic requests for absentee ballots. Municipal clerks will process the requests and mail out absentee ballots when they become available.
The service allows any registered Maine voter to request their absentee ballot by:
- completing and submitting their request form online;
- filling out the request form online, then printing and signing the completed form to mail to their municipal clerk; or
- by printing a blank request form to fill out by hand and deliver to their municipal clerk.
The service is available now for voters to submit their requests; however, ballots will not be sent out until 30 to 45 days before the election. Once a voter has submitted their request using the online service, they will be sent an automated e-mail notification containing the information they submitted and a confirmation number. When the request is processed and accepted by their municipal clerk, they will be sent an additional status notification.
Governor LePage's Accomplishments ( 2012 - 2013 )
Under the leadership of Governor Paul R. LePage, Mainers have benefited from fiscal responsibility and an improved business climate. The LePage Administration implemented the largest tax cut in Maine history, allowing for low-income Mainers to keep their hard-earned money; fixed the pension system; paid the massive welfare debt to Maine's hospitals; reformed welfare programs; reduced regulations on businesses; and brought accountability and transparency to government.
