Voting Information for July 14, 2020 Election


Tuesday, July 14, 2020 is Election Day for the State Primary and Municipal School Budget/Referendum Election. The City’s 11 polling locations will open at 7:00 A.M. and close at 8:00 P.M. Polling locations will look different -- booths will be spread out, hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray will be plentiful, and election workers will have plexiglass barriers, face shields, and masks. Voters are encouraged to wear a mask or face covering when voting. 

Based on your residency, you must vote at your polling place. For this election only, those voters who typically vote at the Portland Expo will vote at the Troubh Ice Arena (located next door to the Expo.) Same day voter registration is allowed with proof of residency. 

Absentee ballots must be returned to the municipal clerk no later than 8:00 pm on Election Day. Absentee ballots must be returned to the Clerk’s Office in the Merrill Auditorium Lobby via the PortTix entrance and not to your normal polling place.
