Maine is one of 33 states (plus the District of Columbia) that permits some form of early voting. Early voting begins as soon as ballots are made available and ends the day before Election Day.[2]

Elections Performance Index

See also: Pew Charitable Trusts' Elections Performance Index

Maine ranked 14th out of the 50 states and District of Columbia in the Pew Charitable Trusts' Elections Performance Index (EPI), based on the 2012 elections. The EPI examines election administration performance and assigns an average percentage score based on 17 indicators of election performance. These indicators were chosen in order to determine both the convenience and integrity of these three phases of an election: registration, voting and counting. Maine received an overall score of 69 percent.[3]
