Elections & Voting
The City of Westbrook has an estimated 17,500 residents and approximately 13,100 registered voters. Our municipality is divided into five Wards, two State Senate Districts (25 & 28) and two State House of Representative Districts (34 & 35). Each municipal Ward has a designated City Councilor, School Committee Member, Warden and Ward Clerk. In addition, the City Council and School Committee each have two "At-Large" positions tasked with representing the municipality as a whole.
Westbrook holds at least two elections every year, on the second Tuesday of June, and on the first Tuesday following the first Monday of November.
In accordance with Governor Janet Mills’ Executive Order 37 FY 19/20, the election originally scheduled for Tuesday June 9, 2020 has been moved to Tuesday July 14, 2020 in an effort to slow the community spread of COVID-19.
Westbrook has one polling location for in-person voting on Election Day - the Westbrook Community Center Gym, located at 426 Bridge Street. Absentee voting (also called "early voting") is a convenient alternative, allowing people to obtain and vote their ballots by mail or at City Hall prior to Election Day.
