Welcome to the Department of the Secretary of State


In observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday all Secretary of State offices will be closed on
Thursday & Friday, November 28 & 29, 2019.

As you browse through our website, you will find a very diverse Department with three distinct bureaus - the Bureau of Corporations, Elections and Commissions, the Maine State Archives and the Bureau of Motor Vehicles . While each bureau has unique duties in the services and information it provides to the citizens of Maine, they all share the Department's goals of ensuring customer satisfaction and providing quality services.
