About The Event

From the Chairman of the Maine Republican Party:

My friends,

This year, March 5th is Election Day for the Presidential primary in Maine. Because it’s still relatively new I wanted to share a little information for folks who may have some questions.

March 5th is a traditional Election Day where you can go to your polling place, wait in line, check in, get your ballot, walk to a voting booth, mark your ballot and slide it into a box or a machine.

You will see it’s a Ranked Choice voting style ballot. IMPORTANT: in our Republican primary we are only recognizing/counting the votes marked in the first column. It is ok to leave the remaining columns blank, or you can mark your candidate all the way across if you prefer.

As Republicans here in Maine we strongly encourage our voters to start “securing your vote” sooner than Election Day for multiple very important reasons. You never know what may come up on Election Day unexpectedly: bad weather, illness, traffic, or having to work late may be a few reasons people may not make it to the polls and miss the opportunity to have their voice heard. The Democrats win when Republicans don't vote.

From Feb. 5th to Feb. 29th, Mainers can vote early for the March 5th primary election.

In Maine, we use absentee ballots to vote early.

Here is how you can vote early and make sure you don’t miss your chance to vote:

(Preferred method)

IN PERSON: During early voting, at your town/city office you can request a “absentee ballot,” mark your ballot, seal the ballot in the signed envelope and hand it back to the clerk to secure your ballot that day.

(Other methods to early vote)

  1. Call your town/city office to request a “absentee ballot” to be mailed to you. Mark your ballot, seal the ballot in the signed envelope and deliver it to your clerk, or drop box or mail it.
  2. When at your town office, ask for a ballot for you and immediate family members to bring home and return in person at a later time or mail it if you prefer.
  3. You can request a ballot online and have it mailed to you, vote at home, return it to your town office or mail it in if you prefer.

Remember our solemn duty as grassroots Republicans is to fight what the Democrats are doing to our state. One of our best weapons is securing your vote.

Please let me know if you have questions.
