The requirements in 21-A M.R.S. §§ 753-A and 753-B governing absentee ballots are suspended and modified in the following respects only:

  • Applications for absentee ballots may be made in writing or in person up to and including the day of the election, without specifying a reason, in order to permit voters to obtain an absentee ballot and return it before the polls close on July 14, 2020; and
  • Absentee ballot applications furnished more than 3 months before June 9, 2020 remain valid for use in the election on July 14, 2020.
