The State of Maine Voter Guide explains how to register and vote in state elections. By voting, you are keeping Maine’s democracy strong and continuing a long history of citizen participation in the governing of our state and nation!
It’s easy to take our right to vote for granted–to decide that voting isn’t worth the effort or “doesn’t make a difference.” The reality is that voting makes a tremendous difference. By casting a ballot, each citizen has a voice in deciding who will serve in office and what positions will be taken on major issues.
For our democracy to work, we must all participate in the process. Please register and vote and encourage your family, friends and neighbors to do the same. You can register to vote by filling out a voter registration card at your town office or city hall and through any Motor Vehicle branch office.
You can also download and print a Maine voter registration application

Instructions for completing the Maine Voter Registration Application
If you cannot print the voter registration application, contact your town clerk to have a voter registration card mailed to you. A printed version of the voter registration card, with your original signature, must be kept on file by your town clerk, so the card cannot be transmitted electronically.
Completed voter registration cards may be hand delivered or mailed to your town office.
