Absentee Ballot Requests Accepted by Phone, Online Until July 9

The State Primary and Special Referendum Election is set for Tuesday, July 14, and both in-person and absentee voting are available for the election. 

Durham residents can vote in person on July 14 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Durham AMVETS Post 13, 1049 Royalsborough Rd. 

For those who would rather vote by absentee ballot and minimize interaction with others during the COVID-10 pandemic, this is an option. Casting an absentee ballot is convenient and secure. 

Absentee ballots may be requested in writing, by phone, online, or in person up to and including the day of the election, without specifying a reason. However, if you are asking to receive your ballot by mail, please request it early enough to allow for postal mail delivery time – both to receive it and return it (2-5 days each way).

You can request an absentee ballot by phone (353-2561 ext. 11), online, and in person until 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 9. Any requests after that date must be done in person at the Durham Town Office during the temporary office hours listed on the home page of the website and here.

You can request an absentee ballot online or by mail from the Secretary of State's website: https://www1.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/AbsenteeBallot/online-form.pl

Ballots must be returned to the municipal clerk no later than 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, July 14.

Absentee Ballot requests on election day will need to be done in person at the polling location (Amvets Post 13, 1049 Royalsborough Road). Details for this process will be coming soon.
