Need to Register to Vote? Here’s How
Make sure you don't miss out on this year's presidential election! If you are a US citizen, will be 18 on November 8th, and are a resident of Maine, you can vote this year. Here's how you do it:
If you are already registered at your current address, you can vote early right now at your local town hall, or on election day. Need to find out where to go? Check out the Maine Secretary of State's website here.
Not registered yet? If you want to vote early, you have to register first before you request an absentee ballot. Check out the video above to learn how to register.
Once you're registered, you can vote early at your town office, or request a ballot online here. It will be mailed to you, and you just have to fill it out and mail it back. Mailed in ballots must be received by 8:00pm ET on election day.
Maine also has same-day voter registration, so if you don't register before election day, just show up at your local polling station and fill out your voter registration card right there. When you register to vote, make sure you have a document like an ID, drivers license, or a utility bill that has your name and current address on it.

See... now you don't have an excuse! Get out there and vote!
