ABSENTEE / VOTING BY MAIL
Any registered Winthrop voter may request a mail ballot using this online application. Once registration is verified and the application is processed, a paper ballot is mailed to the designated address beginning 30 days prior to Election Day.
The deadline to request ballots using this service is 5:00 pm on Thursday, October 29, 2020.
Voters do not have to register with a party, but they do have to choose, publicly, which party’s ballot they will vote in primary elections.
The Bureau of Corporations, Elections & Commissions website has a downloadable list of candidates in the upcoming election. You may also use the Maine Voter Information Lookup Service.
To learn more about the candidates, view one of the voting guides provided by:
