This week's email is a reminder to make sure your voter registration is up-to-date. We've also got a line up of volunteer opportunities — take a training on how to canvass and register voters or a training on how to upload data to our online voter database,

Here are the most crucial things to know this week.


Are you up-to-date?: It's never too late to register to vote in Maine! You can register to vote anytime by visiting your Town Clerk up to and on Election Day (thanks to same-day voter registration). If you've recently moved, you can update your driver's license and voter registration in one visit at the BMV. Learn more about how to register to vote here.

Need help? Check out our How to Vote in Maine portal. Information on how to register to vote is also available in the following languages:
