There are three ways to request an absentee ballot:
PLEASE NOTE: Absentee ballots will be available around October 5th.
Absentee ballot requests must be received by the City Clerk’s Office by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 30, 2020, unless special circumstances exist. There will be no absentee voting on Monday, November 2nd.
The State of Maine now offers an online tool to track the status of your absentee ballot. Voters must enter their name, date of birth, and city of residence to check on the progress of their ballot. They will see a grid that will show whether their request was accepted or rejected by the clerk, as well as the date it was delivered to the voter, and the date when the completed ballot was returned to the clerk.
You may register to vote at the City Clerk’s Office. You will need to bring in one of the forms of identification listed below and proof of your Biddeford address; P.O. boxes are not acceptable. You are also able to register to vote at the polls on Election Day, with the correct proof of residency.
