Absentee ballots may be requested in writing, by phone, in person and online up to and including the day of the election, without specifying a reason.  However, if you are asking to receive your ballot by mail, please request it early enough to allow for postal mail delivery time – both to receive it and return it (2–5 days each way).

You can request an absentee ballot by calling Municipal Clerk’s office at 207-793-4348 You can request an absentee ballot online or by mail from the Secretary of State’s website:
