Election Information, Inquiries and Complaints

Any individual with a question regarding the conduct of elections in Maine, may contact the clerk or registrar of voters in their municipality to either obtain election information or make a complaint about an election issue. Many questions or complaints are resolved at the local level. Individuals may also direct inquiries and complaints to the Elections Division of the Secretary of State's Office at or 207-624-7650.

In compliance with section 402 of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), the Secretary of State has also established an administrative complaint procedure to resolve alleged violations of Title III of HAVA. The new process established by rule is intended to supplement, not substitute for, the more expedient process of resolving election complaints informally by communicating directly with local or state election officials as described above. Individuals wishing to file a complaint under the administrative complaint procedure must complete the Administrative Complaint Procedure Complaint Form. Electronic versions of the form are available below, along with electronic versions of the rule governing the administrative complaint procedure, 29-250 CMR Chapter 510 - Administrative Complaint Procedure for Title III of the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA). Copies may also be obtained by contacting the Office of the Secretary of State.
