Absentee Voting

Absentee Ballots

Voting absentee allows you to receive your ballot prior to Election Day so that you don't have to go to the polls in person. Voters can order absentee ballots up to 90 days prior to an election. When the ballots arrive from the printer (about 30 days prior to the election) the City Clerk's Office will begin mailing them out to all who submitted requests. At that point, voters will also have the option of voting an absentee ballot here at City Hall.

Ordering a Ballot

To order an absentee ballot, voters can:

  • Call the Westbrook Election Hotline at 207-591-8116
  • Order online through the State's Absentee Ballot Request System
  • Mail an Absentee Ballot Request Form to:
    City Clerk's Office
    2 York Street
    Westbrook, ME 04092
  • Visit the City Clerk's Office during regular business hours (8:30am - 5pm, Monday - Friday)

You may request an absentee ballot "without cause" (i.e. without providing a reason for your request) through Thursday November 1, 2018. After that date, you may only obtain an absentee ballot if you fall subject to certain Special Exception provisions.

Submission Deadline

Your absentee ballot must be returned to the City Clerk's Office by 8pm on Tuesday November 6, 2018 (coinciding with the close of the polls).
