Maine Governor Postpones Primary Until July
To mitigate the spread of COVID-19 due to in-person voting, Gov. Janet Mills issued Executive Order 39.
Executive Order 39 postpones the primary from June 9 to Tuesday, July 14.
The order also allows applications for absentee ballots to be made in writing or in person up to and including the day of the election without specifying a reason.
The new application process permits voters to obtain and return the absentee ballot before the polls close on July 14.
