Absentee Ballot Information

Make sure you have a voice in your future - cast a ballot. View the Sample Ballot.

Absentee Ballots are available at the Town Clerk’s Office during normal business hours 30-days prior to an election.

If you would like to vote by absentee ballot but are unable to come to the Town Clerk’s Office during normal business hours to vote in person, contact the staff in the Clerk’s Office at 207-646-2882 to request a ballot by mail. The voter must call the office, as family members cannot request a ballot for another family member by telephone. Immediate family members can request an absentee ballot for another family member by completing an application form and filing it with the staff in the Town Clerk’s Office.

If you need any additional information regarding absentee voting please call the office at 207-646-2882.

Wells participates in a program with the State of Maine that now allows you to request an absentee ballot electronically by using the following link, only when there is a State Election:
