Recall of local elected officials in Maine is available in some jurisdictions.[1]

According to the book Local Government in Maine, published in 1979 (with a 2005 update) by the Maine Municipal Association:

"In some communities, voters can remove an elected official from office before his or her term expires. Such recall provisions, if included in a town or city charter or local ordinance, allow the citizens, after presenting a valid petition, to vote on whether or not they want to allow an official to continue serving in an office to which he or she was elected."[2]
