2021 Elections & Voting Information
Annual Municipal Election is Tuesday, March 9th, 2021, 7:00 AM - 8:00 PM
For the Town of Orono, in-person voting will take place at the Orono Town Council Chambers, 59 Main Street, 7AM until 8PM.
Voters may cast an absentee ballot instead of voting in person. To minimize interaction with others during this public health pandemic (COVID-19), some voters may prefer voting by absentee ballot. 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).
Absentee Ballots will be available beginning on Monday, February 8th
You can request an absentee ballot by calling the Town Office at 207-866-2556
The Clerk's office will be hosting in-person absentee voting on the following dates and times in Council Chambers: Thursday Feb. 25th from 8:00AM - 5:00PM, and Thursday, March 4th from 8:00AM to 5:00PM
Ballots must be returned to the municipal clerk no later than 8:00 pm on Election Day.
