Candidate Withdrawals and Replacements after the June 8, 2004 Primary Election
Includes Withdrawals as of the July 12, 2004 Withdrawal Deadline
Includes Replacement Candidates Received as of 5:00 p.m. on July 26, 2004

Withdrawals Made by 5:00 p.m. on July 12, 2004:
Maine election law (Title 21-A, section 374-A) allows candidates who win their party's primary nomination to withdraw their candidacy after the primary for any reason. The party then has an opportunity to nominate a replacement candidate for that office for the General Election. The deadline for candidates to withdraw is 5 p.m. on July 12, 2004 (the second Monday in July). The Secretary of State then declares a vacancy in that office and notifies the appropriate county or municipal political committee of the vacancy. The political committee can then call a caucus and nominate a replacement candidate.

Replacements Made by 5:00 p.m. on July 26, 2004:
The deadline for the political committee to file the replacement nomination with the Secretary of State is 5 p.m. on July 26, 2004 (the fourth Monday in July). The Secretary of State will then place that replacement candidate's name on the November 2, 2004 General Election ballot as the nominee of the party.

Withdrawals after July 12, 2004:
Candidates who withdraw after 7/12/04 may only be replaced if the withdrawal is due to the catastrophic illness or death of the candidate (Title 21-A MRSA, Section 374-A(1)(B and C).
