Didn’t we just vote. Or does it only seem like last week.

Here comes another chance to ‘exercise your right.’  Tuesday is the City of Bangor’s Primary and Special Municipal Election

If you drive the streets of Bangor you’ve seen the signs. Meaning it’s time.

The polling place for all Bangor voters is the Cross Insurance Center located at 515 Main Street. Voters should enter via the Southwest Entrance off Buck Street.

Polls will be open on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm.

What are we voting for?

Bangor voters will be casting a ballot for election of one member to the City Council.  This is to replace the late Sarah Dubay. Sarah passed away from lung cancer in November 2021, at only 46 years old.

Also voters enrolled in the Democratic or Republican Party will also be casting a State Primary ballot.

Early absentee voting is taking place through Thursday June 9th at Cross Insurance Center from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.

The deadline for requesting an absentee ballot is also Thursday June 9th.

Absentee ballots are now available at the City Clerk’s office. If you are visiting Bangor City Hall to pick up an absentee ballot, remember you have to wear a mask.
You can also call the City Clerk’s office to request an absentee ballot at 992-4200. Or request one on-line. Here's the link. Bangor City Clerk is Lisa Goodwin and she can answer any question you may have about the process.

For those not registered to vote

This is the opportune time to get yourself registered, before the next, busier election. If you would like to register to vote, just take proof of identity and proof of residency.to the Cross Insurance Center

Also if you have moved and you are a registered Bangor voter, take proof of your new residential address to update the voter record.

We are all encouraged to vote. And if you think one vote doesn’t matter, it does when it’s your vote. Your voice. Just go do it. And be proud of being part of the process. It's part of adulthood.
