ATTENTION WISCASSET RESIDENTS
The State Primary and Special Referendum Election is Tuesday, July 14.
At this time, both in-person and absentee voting are available for the July 14 election.
For Wiscasset, in-person voting will take place on July 14 at the Wiscasset Community Center, 242 Gardiner Road. This location will be open from 8am until 8pm.
Voters may cast an absentee ballot instead of voting in person. To minimize interaction with others during this public health pandemic (COVID-19), some voters may prefer voting by absentee ballot. Casting an absentee ballot is convenient and secure.
Absentee ballots may be requested in writing, by phone, online, or in person up to and including the day of the election, without specifying a reason. However, if you are asking to receive your ballot by mail, please request it early enough to allow for postal mail delivery time – both to receive it and return it (2-5 days each way).
- You can request an absentee ballot by calling your Municipal Clerk’s office at 207-882-8200
- You can request an absentee ballot online or by mail from the Secretary of State's website: https://www1.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/AbsenteeBallot/online-form.pl
- Absentee ballot requests are being accepted right now. Printed ballots will be available by mid-June, and we will issue your ballot as soon as possible after that date.
- Ballots must be returned to the municipal clerk no later than 8:00 pm on Election Day.

Guidance for Eating Establishments
The Wiscasset Police Department has received a few complaints regarding possible violations of the Governor's Order pertaining to eating establishments. He received the follwing information from Vanessa Knipping from the Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Environmental and Community Health:
"Eating establishments should be able to open in May as long as they can make appropriate accomodations and operate safely duing the COVID-19 Pandemic,. Currently we have guidance for eating establishments wishing to operate prior to June 1, we do not have guidelines for Phase II of the Governor's Reopening Plan. We are hoping these guidlines will be released soon. In compliance with the Governor's Executive Orders, restaurants are able to provide carry-out, quick service and delivery operations. All indoor/outdoor dining is prohibited; therefore customers will not be able to sit or dine in the outdoor picnic area. Establishments must provide signage, tape or other means to mark six foot spacing for employees and customers in line to maintain appropriate distancing. As of May 1st, cloth face coverings must be worn if physcial distancing is not possible."
