It’s Election Day. Here’s what you need to know before casting your vote.

6 years ago

If you haven’t been following this election cycle’s caravan of candidates or still don’t quite know what is being asked in the state’s four bond questions, don’t be embarrassed. Below is a quick rundown of important details you can use to plan ahead or tab to read while you stand in line at the polls on Tuesday.

When and where can I vote? Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6. To find your polling place, visit the state of Maine’s website and enter your address. That link will also show you a sample ballot that includes candidates to choose from in your local, county, legislative and congressional races, as well as the four bond questions and a single citizen’s initiative Mainers will decide on.

Anyone who hasn’t registered to vote can do so before Election Day at your local town office, city hall or right before you vote at your polling place on Tuesday. Assuming you’re at least 17 years old, you should bring with you a valid ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, and a piece of mail, bank statement or paycheck stub to prove your address. The Maine Voter Registration Application is short and you can fill it out on the spot before you vote.
