Secretary Dunlap to visit
multiple polling places on Election Day
AUGUSTA – Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, Maine’s top election official, will be visiting polling places throughout the day on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3, to observe the voting process and meet with local election officials.
“We’ve seen unprecedented levels of absentee voting this year, but we still expect a strong showing at the polling places from those who prefer to cast their ballot in-person,” said Secretary Dunlap, noting that Mainers will cast ballots not only for their preferred candidate for U.S. President, but also for one of Maine’s two United States Senators, two Representatives to Congress, members of the Maine Legislature, and certain county officers.
Sec. Dunlap will be available to speak to the press at each stop and throughout the day. His schedule will be as follows (times are approximate):
- 7:30 a.m.: Old Town, Elks Lodge, 37 Fourth Street
- 9 a.m.: Waterville, Junior High School, 100 W. River Road
- 11:15 a.m.: Portland, Merrill Auditorium Rehearsal Hall, 20 Myrtle St.
- 12:30 p.m.: Lewiston, Longley Elementary School, 145 Birch St.
- 3:30 p.m.: Augusta, Civic Center, 76 Community Drive
- 5:00 p.m.: Bangor, Cross Insurance Center, 515 Main St.
- 7:30 p.m.: Orono, New Balance Field House and Memorial Gym, 18 Gym Drive
Polls open in most municipalities between 6-10 a.m. and all close at 8 p.m. Secretary Dunlap is encouraging all eligible voters to cast their ballots, reminding them that Election Day voter registration is an option in Maine. Voters can find their polling place and sample ballots via the State of Maine Voter Information Lookup Service.
