Elections & Voting

 

Upcoming Elections 

June 14, 2016

 State Primary and Potential Referendum Election and School Budget Validation Referendum

Primary Elections are always the 2nd Tuesday of June in even numbered years. The purpose of the Primary Election is to determine each of Maine's qualified party's (Democratic, Green Independent, and Republican) nomination of candidates to appear on the General Election ballot in November. Offices included in the 2016 Primary Election are Representative to Congress, State Senate, State Representatives and certain County officers.

In order to participate in the Primary Election, you must be enrolled in one of Maine's qualified party's listed above. If there is a statewide Referendum Election held on the same day, there will be a seperate ballot for the Referendum Election and all registered voters, including voters who are not enrolled in a political party, may participate in that election, as well as the School Budget Validation Referendum Election. Unenrolled voters may enroll in a political party on or before June 14, 2016 if they would like to participate in the Primary Election. 

Any person who is 17 years old and will be 18 on or before the next General Election (November 8, 2016), and is otherwise qualified to be a voter and has enrolled in one of Maine's qualified party's, is then eligible to vote in the Primary Election but will not be eligible to receive a referendum ballot for this election.
