General information

Registering to vote involves completing a voter registration card, which requires a photo ID and proof of residency, such as a Maine driver’s license with a Belgrade address, a utility bill with a Belgrade service address, a copy of a lease or rental agreement, or an oath of residency.Maine also offers same-day voter registration. That means an unregistered voter can go to the polls, register and immediately cast a ballot. To register and vote on the same day, prospective voters must show a Maine driver's license or some other official photo ID (such as a passport) and proof of residency. Residency can be proved with a utility bill (for electric, gas, cable or Internet), a Maine hunting or fishing license issued by the Town of Belgrade, or vehicle registration.
