YOU CAN REGISTER TO VOTE AS LATE AS ELECTION DAY, BUT WHY WAIT? SKIP THE LINES AND REGISTER TODAY.
REGISTERING TO VOTE
Portland residents can register to vote on Election Day at your polling location. Portland residents can also register early by mailing in a Voter Registration Application (PDF) or by filling out that form and visiting City Hall in person.
How to Register: In order to register to vote, you must fill out the Voter Registration Application (PDF) and provide documents that show Proof of Identity (PDF) and proof of residency. A driver’s license or state identification card with the current address meets both criteria.
If you mail in your voter registration card, you must send Proof of Identity (PDF) such as a photocopy of your driver’s license or other ID or an acceptable form that shows Residency. To learn more, visit the State of Maine Voter Information Page.
