TRACK THE STATUS OF YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT ONLINE
A new service was launched this year that allows voters to track the status of their absentee ballot.
The Absentee Ballot Request Status service (https://apps.web.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/AbsenteeBallot/index.pl
) is now live, located at the top of the online absentee ballot request page. Any voter who has requested an absentee ballot can now track the status of their request, and of the ballot itself, through the Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020 General Election.
"This tracker will give voters peace of mind knowing that their ballot is on its way, and later, that their ballot has been safely received and accepted by the municipal clerk," said Secretary Dunlap.
Voters can request an absentee ballot via the online service or directly with their municipal clerk through Thursday, Oct. 29, 2020; or in-person with the municipal clerk through 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30, 2020. All ballots must be in hand with the municipal clerk no later than 8 p.m. on Election Day.
