June 2019 Elections, ballots, budgets and warrants

Share: 

June is when Maine citizens weigh how much to spend on school budgets, and polls are open in many towns for voters to cast ballots on other municipal business.

While individual municipalities hold their annual meetings at various times during the year (some are in March, others in May, still others in June), a number of them now hold town meetings soon after the June elections are held.

This year, June 11 is the day for local elections and secret ballot articles on ordinance amendments, as well as school budgets.  

This page collects all of the June polling and town meeting information. Scroll through to find your town and learn what’s in front of voters. 

All elections will be held June 11, except for Northport which votes June 1. Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. To locate your town’s polling location, visit the “Where to Vote” links on the right sidebar. 

The State of Maine provides an online service to request absentee ballots. The ballots are sent via postal mail and must be returned to municipal clerks by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Voters may also contact their municipal offices, as well, to get absentee ballots.
