The State of Maine General Presidential Election is Tuesday, November 3, 2020. For Dover-Foxcroft voters, in-person voting will take place on November 3rd at the Dover-Foxcroft Municipal Building Gymnasium located at 48 Morton Ave., Dover-Foxcroft. Polling hours are from 8:00 am until 8:00 pm.

Both in-person and absentee voting are available for the November 3rd Election. Voters may cast an absentee ballot instead of voting in person to minimize interaction with others during this public health pandemic (COVID-19). Casting an absentee ballot is convenient and secure.

Absentee ballot requests are being accepted right now. Printed ballots will be available by early October, and we will issue your ballot as soon as possible after that date. We check all absentee ballot requests against the voter registration list to ensure that only one absentee ballot is issued to each voter.

Ballots can be returned in person or by mail to: Dover-Foxcroft Town Office, 48 Morton Ave. Suite A, Dover-Foxcroft, ME 04426. Postage will be pre-paid to return your absentee ballot. We have a drop box on the outside of the municipal building by the fron tentrance specifically for dropping off Dover-Foxcroft Absentee ballots only. The box is secure and can only be opened by a municipal clerk. You can leave your ballot in the drop box right up until the polls close at 8PM on Election Day.
  • You can make a telephone request for your own ballot to be mailed to the address you provide to the clerk. Call (207) 564-3318 To complete your application over the phone, we must speak to you directly. Voicemail requests will not be accepted.

The statewide deadline to request an absentee ballot is by 4pm on Thursday, October 29, 2020. Please request and return your ballot early enough to allow for postal mail delivery time. Ballots must be returned to the municipal clerk by 8:00 PM on November 3rd Election Day.

Important, You must sign your name on the designated line on the back of your absentee ballot envelope.
