PORTLAND, Maine – The City Clerk’s office will stay open late Thursday evening, October 30th from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM for in-person absentee voting and voter registration for Tuesday’s election. Currently, voters can come to City Hall and vote in the State of Maine Room on the 2nd floor during the Clerk’s normal business hours of 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Thursday is the last day for voters to vote an absentee ballot. Absentee ballots that are not completed in-person at City Hall can be returned to the City Clerk’s office between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:30 PM Friday and Monday and up until 8:00 PM on Election Day.
With a week to go until Election Day, the City of Portland’s City Clerk’s Office has issued approximately 5,100 absentee ballots, consistent with the last gubernatorial election.
Residents can register to vote in person at the City Clerk’s office prior to November 4, 2014. On Election Day, residents must register at their polling place. To register to vote, you must bring identification and proof of Portland residency to your polling place. A driver’s license or state identification card with the current address meets both criteria, otherwise, a checkbook, car registration, or personal mail addressed to the applicant at the current address will suffice.
